Bridging the Gap Between Bilingual and Special Education.
Landurand, Patricia; And Others
The report includes three papers on the exceptional bilingual child and summaries of 22 bilingual/bicultural special education federally funded training programs. The first paper "Bilingual Special Education Report" by P. Landurand describes Massachusetts' Bilingual Special Education Project (BISEP) which has cooperated with regional education centers in developing a clearinghouse, resource directory, and training workshops for school personnel. N. Dew and R. Perlman ("The Illinois Resource Center: A Model Program for the Provision of Support Services") describe the activities of a state resource center in the areas of inservice, publication and dissemination, and teacher training. In "Mainstreaming Inservice Project for Children of Limited English Speaking Ability," A. Schuhmann and M. Napoliello review a program at Kean College, New Jersey, for special education, bilingual education, and teachers of English as a second language. The 22 project descriptions concluding the paper provide a brief summary of each project as well as the name and address of a contact person. (CL)
