The resource guide provides information on 79 exemplary secondary programs serving handicapped youth in seven states (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont) and on instructional materials for use in a resource room or learning resource center collection in secondary and vocational education for the handicapped. Project profiles are presented alphabetically under the appropriate state and include the following information: project director, years in operation, cost per child, funding sources, other affiliations, student population, site description, project staff (number of personnel and type of inservice training), and program information (goals and objectives, description of methods and content of instruction, screening and testing, use of community resources, parent involvement, evaluation, and dissemination capabilities). Information (such as publisher, brief description, and cost) is also given on instructional materials in seven content areas--consumer education, driver education, language arts, mathematics, science, self-development skills, and vocational education. In addition, a publisher's index and a table listing programs by state are provided. (SBH)
