Implementing Childfind/Serve: A Resource Handbook for Educators.
Tucker, James A.; And Others
Designed as a resource for all educational personnel involved with Child Find/Serve activities, the manual contains three sections which may be used independently or as a group to provide an overview of the Child Find/Serve process. The first section is an activity based handbook developed to assist in the evaluation of existing and beginning programs. Guidelines and suggested strategies are presented to help local, intermediate, and state education agencies in the identification, appraisal, and educational services of handicapped children (to age 21). The second section contains five monographs on the following topics: (1) changes in Child Find as a result of P.L. 94-142 (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act), (2) child tracking systems, (3) interagency coordination of Child Find efforts, (4) direction service, and (5) the role of an advertising/public relations firm in Child Find. The third section is an annotated bibliography of publications covering aspects of the Child Find/Serve program. (PHR)
