Toward an Improved Regional Delivery System for Special Education Support Services in Massachusetts: Resource Linking System. Concept Paper.
Lavin, Richard J.; And Others
Proposed is a regional (Northeast) model to stimulate and draw together local and state services in a Resource Linking System for special education. It is explained that the model would provide the following five functions: appraisal of teachers' training needs, management and development of materials, field-based inservice training for teachers and administrators, technical assistance, and information dissemination. Detailed are the four main objectives of the model: (1) to analyze needs assessment data of local educators gathered from regional surveys; (2) to link available national, state, and regional resource systems to local services; (3) to train "peer enablers" (master teachers) to consult with local teachers or administrators; and (4) to provide a resource and knowledge utilization system for replication in other areas.
