State of the Art and Future Trends in Special Education 1980: An Analysis Using the ERIC Data Base.
Cambel, Marion, Ed.
The report analyzes trends in research and programs in special education. Twelve reviewers from each of the divisions of The Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) reviewed abstracts of ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center) documents (project reports, research reports, and conference presentations). The ERIC documents resulted from a computer search of all documents submitted between December 1979 and November 1980. Reviewers completed a matrix on scope, age/educational level, main focus, program or research, and unusual content indicating developing trends. Each reviewer's narrative comments are presented for four components: research and program activity (including discussion on omitted documents and field terms); new models, programs, or research with significant or future implications; state of the art and future trends; and suggestions for future analyses. Reviewers represent the following CEC division areas: administration (Robert L. Guarino); behavioral disorders (Steve C. Imber); mental retardation (Donna Denney Tynan); educational diagnostic services (R. C. Taylor); learning disabilities (Linda Brown); career development (B. Diane Wimmer); communication disorders (Paul A. Waryas); early childhood (Jane DeWeerd); physically handicapped (Barbara Sirvis); visually handicapped (Anne L. Corn); gifted (Felice Kaufmann); and teacher education (Robert G. Simpson). (CL)
