Policies and Procedures Manual. Washington County Children's Program Outreach Project. Machias, Maine.
The manual presents policy and procedural information drawn from early intervention programs for handicapped infants and young children. Materials are based on the Infant Development Center (IDC) in South Portland, Maine, a state program for handicapped children from birth to 5 years old, and on the Washington County Children's Program (WCCP), a nonprofit home-based early intervention program for young children with special needs. The IDC materials address the following client policies: referrals, initial home visit, services, program planning, inactivation and followup, and recordkeeping. Additional statements are presented for policies dealing with staff, parent groups, the advisory board, general procedures, and public information. WCCP materials focus on such aspects as the project's governing body, personnel (including policies and job descriptions), direct services, and financial information. Sample forms of both projects are included. (CL)
