The document reports on six minigrant projects designed to promote cross training and dialogue among New York State professionals concerned with the education of handicapped individuals. Sections on each project contain a project abstract and/or project objectives, a description of project activities and a list of products developed during the project. The Vocational Education Administrator Training Materials Development project developed an inservice training module which uses simulation and role playing to orient vocational education administrators to the major issues in the delivery of services to disabled students. The Professional Fitness Among Special Needs Personnel--Burnout Prevention and Rehabilitation project led to the development of a preservice model to assist prospective educators who will be working with special needs students, to remain vibrant, enthusiastic, and proactive in their teaching. Two projects, titled "A Communication Model for Special Education and Counseling Programs" and "Interdisciplinary Collaboration at Cornell--Teacher Preparation in Home Economics and Agriculture," developed annotated bibliographies of materials and resources available for assisting college faculty in meeting their special education needs. Two additional projects, "Interdisciplinary Workshop--Educational and Health Professions" and "Mainstreaming--The Integration of Handicapped Individuals into Regular Education Settings," illustrated appropriate workshop formats to promote cross training of professionals involved in the education of individuals with handicapping conditions.
