916 ISD Summer Assessment Team Facilitator for Transition of Students from Agency to Public School Programs.
Johns, Antoinette; And Others
The presentation reviews the evolution of a summer special education assessment team. The interdisciplinary team grew from a due process specialist and occupational therapist to include a speech clinician. Their roles changed from processing students for special education to facilitating the transition of students and their families from private agencies to a public school program. Characteristics of effective interdisciplinary teams are listed, including defined boundaries and common language. The team process is described, and needs of agencies, staff, and parents identified. The student evaluation and Individual Education Program development process are charted for 1979/80, 1980/81, and 1981/82. Assessment team data are also summarized according to motor, personal-social self care, and language development. (CL)
