Project Transition Outreach Services: Final Report, July 1, 1981 to June 30, 1982.
Mental Health and Mental Retardation Authority of Harris County, Houston, TX.
The report describes achievements of a 3-year administration project designed to help parents and young children make the transition from community infant programs into public school early childhood special education classes. The importance of this transition period is underlined. The project developed a model to facilitate communication between parents, school districts, and community infant programs. An outreach approach is presented which provided technical assistance in the areas of services to parents, early childhood and infant curriculum materials, and school district liaison. Outreach staff planned technical assistance tailored to the needs of each of eight replication sites. Outreach training materials (parent notebooks and early childhood curricula) are described, as are replication sites. The project's coordination with other agencies is documented. Evaluation approaches are charted according to major evaluation questions, instruments used, and measurement procedures. Among appended materials are sample project forms, workshop agendas, and curriculum excerpts. (CL)
