Training of Personnel to Serve Children with Special Needs: A Report from the Cooperative Planning Consortium of Special Education Programs in the University of North Carolina.
North Carolina Univ., Chapel Hill. Frank Porter Graham Center.
Reviewed are current higher education resources in North Carolina for training special educators, school psychologists, and speech and hearing specialists who serve handicapped children. It is explained that current resources were found to be inadequate when compared with projected needs for preservice training of new personnel and for inservice training to upgrade the qualifications of existing staff members. Recommendations are offered for augmenting existing training resources, for meeting future needs for increased personnel, and for initiating a field-based education system to assist public schools and agencies in upgrading and certifying current personnel. Appendixes include data on active and developing training programs at the University of North Carolina and at private institutions of higher learning within the state. (LH)
