Frankenburg, William K., Ed.
Proceedings from a 1980 symposium on the delivery of education and health services to handicapped children are summarized. Topics briefly addressed include funding, leadership and responsibility, communication and trust, and coordination and collaboration strategies. Fifteen conference recommendations are listed, including that each level of government should establish and/or publicize funding priorities for child health programs; that fiscal rewards should be established to encourage innovative efforts; and that health agencies, schools, and social service agencies should plan together for programs that complement each other. Abstracts of 31 model collaborative projects presenting innovative service delivery schemes are presented along with abstracts of seven model training/curriculum programs. Program summaries are followed by names and addresses of contact persons. (CL)
