Alliances in Health and Education for Disabled Children and Youth: Directions for the 80s. A Forum (Arlington, Virginia, March 25-27, 1982).
American Society of Allied Health Professions, Washington, DC.; American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
Selections from proceedings of a 1982 forum on collaboration between health and education groups serving disabled students and their families include an overview of the state of the art and suggestions for future cooperative ventures. In the keynote address, Senator L. Weicker, Jr., cites damaging effects of cutbacks in federal funds for special education and rehabilitation. Papers by M. Reynolds, H. Hickey, and H. Richardson, Jr., address the current status of education, allied health, and pediatrics. Responding to the state of the art papers are a consumer, E. Ellis, and a parent, J. Wittenmyer. Four papers describe cooperative program initiatives that emphasize sharing responsibilities with and communicating information to other disciplines. Prior to summary comments from the perspectives of education and allied health, forum issues and recommendations are considered in terms of obstacles to coordination and policy recommendations for national, state, and local efforts.
