Getting the Buck to Stop Here: A Guide to Federal Resources for Special Needs.
Goltz, Diane L.; Behrmann, Michael M.
Intended for administrators, researchers, teachers, personnel trainers, and advocates whose major concern is the provision of services to exceptional children and youth, the manual provides information for identifying and accessing relevant sources of federal funding. Section I consists of matrixes divided into seven areas of interest: administration/governance; health/mental health/nutrition; minority; training; supplemental services; research and development; and career/vocational education. Information in the matrixes is provided to facilitate the selection of federal programs which may be appropriate funding sources. Each matrix specifies program title, catalog number, exceptionality, eligible applicant, major focus, educational level, a cross reference to any other area of interest in which the specific program might be found, and specific needs descriptors. Each matrix combines specific applicant needs (e.g., diagnostic/placement or parent/family services) with various program requirements (e.g., major focus, exceptionality) for each of the federal programs. Section II lists over 100 individual federal programs relating to the provision of education and services for exceptional individuals. Program descriptions, which are listed in numerical order according to "Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance" number, include a listing of the federal agency involved, the program title and contact information, the population served, program objectives, uses and use restrictions, types of assistance, and application procedures. The introduction explains the use of the manual. (Author/SBH)
