A Planning and Evaluation Strategy for State Developmental Disabilities Councils: Progress Report. Working Paper No. 71.
Halpern, Andrew S.; And Others
Presented in the first year report of a joint project by the Oregon Developmental Disabilities Council and the Research and Training Center in Mental Retardation at the University of Oregon are planning strategies to assist state advisory councils in serving the developmentally disabled. Described in part one are project activities and reproduced in part two are training materials to explain the proposed strategies. Reviewed are such project aspects as components (including education and social services) of annual state plans and models of programing-planning-budgeting systems. A discussion of project methodology and results centers on findings from state workshops and surveys regarding such major responsibilities as assessing state needs and monitoring on-going programs and projects. Summarized is the project's progress and outlined are second year activities. Instructional materials presented include the script of a slide-tape show illustrating a planning and evaluation strategy for state developmental disabilities councils, and procedures and exercises for workshops on defining goals and priorities and evaluating goal achievement by state and local councils. Two appendixes present such information as a list of 11 expanded problem statements adopted by the Oregon State Council for use in the state plan. (CL)
