Timing + Flexibility + Hard Work = Success! A Report on the Continuation of HCEEP Demonstration Projects. Series Paper No. 5.
Daniel, Sherry; Jackson, Joyce
The paper discusses the results of a survey of 17 Handicapped Children's Early Education (HCEEP) demonstration programs in Illinois, Mississippi, Wisconsin, and all states west of the Mississippi River to discover how each program obtained funding to continue the programs after the 3 year grant period expired. Results of the survey revealed that all 17 programs were able to obtain some funding, although few programs were able to provide services identical to those offered during the grant period. Multiple sources of funding was the solution for almost two thirds of the programs. Over half the programs formed alliances with a local education agency, or other local agencies, and in most cases this meant changing the program significantly. Adaptation included changes in types of handicapping conditions served, ages of the children served, types of services, staff, and number of children served. As a result of the survey, six recommendations were made, such as the use of multiple sources of funding and flexibility. (PHR)
