The format is such that the major speakers are identified for each of the four sessions, the thrust of each major speech is recorded, and pertinent dialogue between speakers and participants is presented. The speeches and discussions center upon the services available to handicapped American Indian children; the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the role of its schools in exceptional child education; teacher education for those involved in teaching handicapped Indian children; explications and definitions relative to Titles I, III, and VI of ESEA; funding possibilities; etc. Major speakers are identified as representatives from the U.S. Office of Education; Western Michigan University; the University of Arizona; the Albuquerque Public Schools; the Bureau of Indian Affairs; school boards; and the National Indian Education Advisory Committee.
