A Progress Report for the Vermont Interagency Council on Child Development.
This report offers an assessment of the status of child development programs in Vermont based on information gathered by the Interagency Council on Child Development which was created by the Vermont legislature in 1974. Program descriptions for each state department, division and agency represented on the Council, and several not represented, are included in the report: the human services agency, corrections department, health department, mental health department, social and rehabilitation services department, social welfare department, education department, governor's commission on administration of justice, office of child development and University of Vermont extension service. Research and information meetings resulted in the identification of four generalized categories of findings: positive dynamics, duplication of services, gaps in services, and problem areas. These findings are discussed and Council recommendations are outlined. The appendix includes maps of the agency, department and division geographic boundaries. (ED)
