Report of a Study of the Special Education Program in the Montgomery County Public Schools.
Presented is a report on a study to evaluate the special education program in Montgomery County (Maryland) Public Schools and to make recommendations for future program planning. An introduction to the study is provided in Chapter I which covers background information on Montgomery County (such as demographic data), a brief review of the development of special education in the U.S., and the history of Montgomery County's Department of Special Education. Sections in Chapter II include a brief program history, a statement on the method of data collection, the major findings of the evaluations, and recommendations for each of the eight programs of special education: auditory handicapped, emotionally handicapped, mentally retarded, orthopedically handicapped, home instruction, speech and hearing handicapped, special learning disabilities, and visually handicapped. Reported in Chapter III are the findings from consultants' responses to questions in the areas of instruction, organization, staff, pupils, auxiliary personnel and services, housing and physical facilities, budget, community resources, parents, communication, attitudes, and research. Among conclusions on each of the twelve categories presented in Chapter IV are that while some curriculum guides had been prepared and distributed to teachers, their use was limited; and that one of the program's deficiencies was the almost complete lack of programs for inservice education.
