The Southwest Regional Resource Center; A Compilation in Retrospect. Final Technical Report.
New Mexico State Univ., Las Cruces. Southwest Regional Resource Center.
The final technical report of the Southwest Regional Resource Center (SWRRC) summarizes activities between 1969 and 1974, which focused on the improvement of education for handicapped children through the development of diagnostic and testing procedures, the preparation of experimental curricular materials, information dissemination to regular and special education teachers, direct inservice contact between trained change agents and teachers, and the evaluation of diagnostic/prescriptive methods. It is explained that services were provided to Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Nevada as well as to the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Activities of the SWRRC are reviewed in chapters containing an overview of its operational history; annual summaries of program operations in the states served; an evaluation of outcomes (in terms of factors such as the appropriateness of goals, and target groups and the significance of SWRRC's impact on the education of handicapped children); and recommendations for ongoing Regional Resource Centers. Included in the appendixes that comprise a major portion of the document are SWRRC-developed products such as an action-research study of the incidence of exceptionality among school children in New Mexico, a teacher rating scale for screening secondary school exceptional children in Arizona, and a directory of services available to handicapped children in New Mexico.
