Hayes, Andrew E.; Ellis, Norman E.
Presented is a state-by-state summary of programs and activities for young handicapped children obtained through a 1973 survey of 37 state directors of special education. Each summary includes a brief description of legislation and current programs, plans, and needs. Summarized are general problems common to all states such as a lack of specific objectives to define the services needed by handicapped children and a lack of comprehensive legislation. Also pointed out are common features of legislation, such as the dependence of mandatory programs on funding and commonly perceived legislative needs such as for coordination of services provided within a state.
