Five Years of Research in Special Education. A Summary Report.
Keogh, Barbara K.; And Others
Presented is the summary report of a 5-year research program conducted in California to investigate substantive problems and questions relevant to the education of exceptional children, with emphasis on research questions having direct implications for the development and operation of public school special education programs. Priority recommendations stemming from over 60 separate projects covering a broad range of special education topics and target groups are reported, including the following (listed after subject headings): training (implementation of immediate changes in pre- and inservice requirements), comprehensiveness of services (systematic effort to identify exceptional pupils now unserved), responsibilities for services (delineation of responsibilities), data collection systems (implementation of comprehensive record keeping systems), and coordinated research (expansion of state support for research). The bulk of the document consists of abstracts on the projects completed during the first four phases. A list of the phase V projects is included. Also appended is a list of over 100 selected publications, presentations, theses, dissertations, and grants derived from participation in the project. (IM)
