Engelbrecht, Eleanore, Ed.; And Others
In fulfillment of their federal mandate to support and develop the capacity of states to deliver educational appraisal and programming services to handicapped children, the Northeast Regional Resource Center and the New York Regional Resource Center conducted the Northeastern Conference for School Social Workers, in Saratoga Springs, New York on November 19, 20, and 21, 1975. This publication contains the proceedings of that Conference. Conference sessions provided school social workers with the opportunity to exchange information and ideas on philosophy and practice, as well as to prepare position papers on selected areas in the field of school social work. The following topics were discussed: identification, assessment, and programming for handicapped preschool and kindergarten children; identification and assessment of the special needs of students in public schools; establishing priorities and strategies for social work service in public schools; social work function in the mainstreaming of handicapped children; team concepts in appraisal and programming; parent involvement in the education of their children; reporting and recording of school records; and social work at the elementary, junior, and senior high school levels. Also included are an evaluation of the conference, and names and addresses of conference participants and the planning committee. (Author/RM)
