Travel Training for the Handicapped. Final Evaluation Report, 07/01/81 to 09/30/82.
New York City Public Schools, Brooklyn, NY.
The final report details accomplishments of a New York City demonstration program to train handicapped students to travel independently on public transportation. It is explained that three major objectives were attained: five new replicators were identified during each of 3 years, replicators followed the program description, and replicators continuing for more than a 1-year period received continued assistance from the demonstrator. Among activities described are dissemination of program information, orientation workshops, staff training for new replicators, and newsletter production. Evaluation activities included discrepancy analyses performed during replicator site visits, measures of the amount and type of technical assistance provided, and examination of project logs to determine communication between demonstrators and current replicators. Type and year of project participation by New York State Schools and school districts are depicted in an appended table. (CL)
