In Retrospect 1978-79: Special Education Research.
Dallas Independent School District, TX. Dept. of Research and Evaluation.
The volume is a composite of final reports written for nine special education research and evaluation studies conducted by the Dallas (Texas) Independent School District during the 1978-79 school year. Each report includes three components: an executive summary of research or evaluation questions and responses; an abstract with information on program objectives, sampling, design, and outcomes; and "googles," brief notes on critical aspects of the study. Three program studies are covered: formation of a special education data base of demographic information, a context evaluation of the implementation and operation of the special education program, and an evaluation of Child Find services. Six special projects are included: three on KIDS (Kindling Individual Development Systems), an early intervention program for developmentally delayed and physically handicapped children 0 to 5 years old; a project for severely/profoundly handicapped students; a structured environment approach with the emotionally disturbed; and the Multiple Careers Magnet and Assessment Centers program which provided career training for mildly handicapped secondary students.
