A planning and decision making process to facilitate research dissemination is illustrated with the example of a research project to study techniques for helping young handicapped children make the transition successfully from a special preschool to a public school kindergarten. General guidelines for planning dissemination are listed. Major considerations in dissemination efforts are noted to include the following: dissemination efforts should be closely related to the research project's purpose; make sure the considerations of purpose and audience are entwined; select the best medium/media; make early efforts to disseminate information through conferences, workshops, articles, etc.; and evaluate the program at every stage of the dissemination process. Appended is a set of guidelines for preparing a clear set of instructional materials. (SB)
