Dequin, Henry C.
This report contains a narrative and two evaluations of a week-long institute on media services for handicapped students which was held at Northern Illinois University. Purposes of the institute were to: (1) extend the abilities of school library media professionals to provide media services to handicapped children; (2) supply information on sources of materials especially pertinent for the handicapped; (3) provide institute participants with the expertise necessary to present in-service sessions for teachers on service to the handicapped; (4) help participants communicate with parents of handicapped children about available services; and (5) stimulate greater initiative and involvement in this aspect of school library media services. Participants in the institute were professionals involved in the application of library media services and materials in relation to special education. A short summative evaluation of the institute is followed by an in-depth program report by an external evaluator; the second report describes the evaluation design and findings from questionnaires distributed to participants before and after the institute. Lists of goals and objectives, consultants/speakers, institute participants, and the schedule of events are attached. (SW)
