Administration of Special Education for Rural and Sparsely Populated Areas.
Weatherman, Richard F., Ed.; Hollingsworth, Sue Ann, Ed.
This book is a compilation of papers prepared for a 1975 conference on the delivery of special education services. Because conference participants were from states where problems of distance and low population density complicate the delivery of special education programs, a multifaceted approach was used to address these two critical problems. The 11 individual articles that compose the book focus on the future trends and current difficulties educators must face in developing programs for handicapped children. The articles include "Economic Outlook for Human Service Delivery in Rural America,""A Statewide Plan for Special Education,""Problems and Issues in a Rural Cooperative,""The Southwest Regional Educational Service Agency for Mainstreaming Handicapped Children,""Implementing Early Education Programs for Handicapped Children,""A Look at Regional Centers Serving Handicapped Children,""ESEA Title III and Its Implications for Service Handicapped Students,""A Model for Training Leadership Persons in Rural and Sparsely Populated Areas,""Trends in School Finance and Budgeting,""Personnel Management in Rural/Sparsely Populated Areas," and "Evaluating Need for Special Education Service in Sparsely Populated Areas."
