Precis: Long-Term Personal Program Coordination; Summary of a Report by Leopold Lippman to the Developmental Disabilities Council of New Jersey.
Mount Carmel Guild, Newark, NJ.
The author reviews the need to provide continuity of services to developmentally disabled persons and makes recommendations for the redesign of New Jersey's organizational structure responsible for personal program coordination. Limitations of existing programs are seen to involve administrative, categorical and geographic factors. Proposed are administrative changes that would allow for establishment of local "one stop human resources centers" supervised by a state agency to provide outreach and casefinding, information and referral, advocacy support, record keeping, periodic followup evaluation and intervention, and life-long availability. Administrative arrangements, information use and sharing, implications for other systems, public information and education, and funding considerations are analyzed. (CL)
