National Survey of State Special Needs Personnel Serving Handicapped and Disadvantaged Students in Vocational Education.
Weatherman, Richard; Krantz, Gordon
This report contains tabulations of responses to a questionnaire sent to the persons in each state education agency responsible for coordinating the programs of Special Needs in Vocational Education. Each respondent was asked to identify one program serving Special Needs in his state. The questionnaire also asked whether the state had held a cooperative conference involving vocational education, vocational rehabilitation, and special education, and whether the state had an organized program of inservice training for administrators of Special Needs programs jointly involving the three agencies. A final question was, "In order to help you to better administer your program at the state level, what are your needs in such areas as information, training programs, and administration?" The report of this survey closes with a number of conclusions and recommendations. (Author/MLF)
