Project Serch: Seeking Educational Resources for Children with Handicaps. State Wide Report. Final Report.
Presented is the final report of a Title VI project that was set up in New Jersey to plan statewide day school facilities which would provide sequential educational programs from nursery through grade 12 for severely handicapped children in four categories: deaf, deaf blind, severely emotionally disturbed, and multiply handicapped. It is explained that six regional committees composed of interested citizens were charged with tasks such as identifying the children to be served, determining their educational needs, and offering recommendations concerning physical plant needs and site specifications; and that final reports of six regional planning units were correlated by a coordinating council for presentation to the State Board of Education. A major portion of the document consists of detailed information on such project aspects as the proceedings of numerous regional and coordinating council meetings and recommended educational specifications for each of the six regions, including facility and land site checklists, data on incidence of handicapped children, and tables giving program statistics. Appendixes include results of a parent-educator survey about educational goals and consultant reports on the needs of deaf, emotionally or socially disturbed, and multiply handicapped children. (LH)
