The booklet contains descriptions of 15 Handicapped Children's Early Education Program (HCEEP) projects as well as descriptions of special education projects developed with funds from other sources. The first section contains an overview of all HCEEP programs; identifies the special class of children who are targets for HCEEP efforts; and briefly describes the legislative history, intents, and components of HCEEP. References for more detailed information are included. The second section raises some important general issues affecting the adoption of early education programs for the handicapped, and identifies several classes of potential adopters. Finally, to acquaint National Diffusion Network readers with the variety of resources that can be tapped to provide programs and services for young handicapped children, the remaining sections identify and describe resources (foundations, books, directories, pamphlets, reports, journals, and newsletters) available to support the dissemination, training, administrative, funding, and information needs of both the Developer/Demonstrators and the potential adopters of their model programs and services.
