Oregon Univ., Eugene. Northwest Regional Special Education Instructional Materials Center.; Southwest Regional Resource Center, Salt Lake City, UT.
Conceived as an idea book for educators, parents, concerned citizens, and others interested in special education services for handicapped children living in rural areas, these proceedings constitute the results of a 3 day workshop. Used as a guide, this document may serve as an index to possible resources for use in any typical rural area. The ideas presented are intended to stimulate the planning and implementation of programs. Information is color indexed, indicating 3 major divisions which are further divided into substrategies as follows: (1) Program (identification, curricula, training, and parent and community); (2) Administration (communication and commitment, staffing, and responsibility and accountability); and (3) Legislation (law and funding). Each subcategory is then Approached in terms of various "tactical arenas" for which there are specific prescriptive measures. For example, in the area of program identification, there are 4 tactical arenas, one of which is to "Develop, implement, and evaluate a continuous process for locating unserved handicapped children, including minorities and low-incidence handicapped". Procedural prescriptions designated as "tactical steps, who, where, how, and when" are then specified for this particular tactical arena. (JC)
