Outreach: Proceedings of the 1980 HCEEP Outreach Project Directors' Conference (Reston, Virginia, September 10-12, 1980).
Spencer, Lynn, Ed.
This collection of conference proceedings focuses on the outreach projects of the Handicapped Children's Early Education Program (HCEEP). The goals of these projects are (1) to stimulate quality services to preschool handicapped children, their families and teachers, and (2) to develop effective outreach models. Each of the five key objectives of the conference is outlined in the Preface. Chapter I examines the current status and future directions of the outreach projects. Chapter II reviews outreach dissemination models in terms of conceptual bases, assumptions, principles and procedures. (The four models discussed are the SKI*HI, the Early Recognition Intervention Network (ERIN); the Macomb 0-3 Regional Project; and the High/Scope Cognitively Oriented Preschool Curriculum.) Chapter III focuses on the provision of technical assistance to outreach directors and presents a summary of conference discussions in the areas of target selection, materials development and distribution, training, and model fidelity. Chapter IV provides information on improving coordination among outreach projects and state education agencies. The final chapter, Chapter V, describes the results of reviewing and revising the indicators of impact for HCEEP outreach activities. Appendices include a list of conference participants and a list of State Directors of Special Education, Preschool Incentive Grant Directors and Coordinators, and HCEEP State Implementation Grant Directors and Coordinators.
