Considerations for Planning and Advisory Councils on Developmental Disabilities. A Perspective Paper.
Trohanis, Pat, Ed.
Detailed for planning and advisory councils on developmental disabilities are the public relations aspects involved in implementing the Developmental Disabilities Act of 1970. Portrayed is the need for different information approaches to different segments of society. Discussed in a chapter on the foundations of a public information program are such planning dimensions as research, objectives, message, and feedback. Reviewed among the delivery channels for public information are film and slidetape, radio and television, newsletters and newspapers. Summarized are planning aspects (purposes, intended audience, messages, delivery channels, and evaluation), coordinating the program, and executing the plan. Provided in four appendixes are examples of public information efforts in Connecticut, Iowa, and New England. (CL)
