Todd, Joseph H.; Fisher, Thomas E.
Described and evaluated is Ohio's Special Education Regional Resource Center Network. Discussed are background information, funding structure and goals of the two major components (Program Planning and Development Centers and Instructional Resource Centers) as well as such other components as research and development projects. Reported is a 1974 Instructional Resource Center evaluation which consisted of a mail survey of 695 special educators' awareness and use of the Centers and in reactions from site visits. The evaluation includes the following findings: the centers were valued by all special educators surveyed, materials borrowing and training assistance were ranked as the most helpful services, and priority in future services was assigned to installing a computer terminal at the school to receive educational prescriptions for individual children. Appended are the seven service areas found in the mail survey and a list of site visitors. (CL)
