Lutz, Carolyn Hebden; And Others
The final report describes a project designed to serve preschool handicapped children in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Seven service components are outlined: creating public awareness of programs and services available to previously unserved handicapped individuals; locating, identifying, and verifying unserved handicapped persons; providing individualized program plans for handicapped persons; providing instructional programs and related services for preschool handicapped children for whom such programs are not mandated or otherwise available; developing and maintaining a child-tracking system; providing resource information necessary for adequate services to handicapped persons under the Education for All Handicapped Children Act, Part B (EHA-B); and to gather, summarize, and report information about EHA-B programs and services for management, accountability, and ongoing planning purposes. Sections cover major objectives, projected target groups, a project overview, component based activities, the evaluation framework, evaluation results for each program component, and dissemination. Appendixes, which make up the bulk of the document, include the following materials: sample "Starting Early" brochures (for identification of exceptional children), a preschool survey form, a sample IEP (individualized educational program), external evaluation reports, and lists of criteria by competencies.
