Resource Consultant as Service Provider to Behaviorally Impaired Students in Rural Areas.
Vasa, Stanley F.
The position paper delineates the strengths and weaknesses of the resource consultant in serving mildly behaviorally impaired students in rural areas. Three models of consultation (purchase of expertise, doctor-patient, and process models) are described and advantages of each for classroom teachers are noted. Ways to increase the utilization of the resource consultant model focus on administrative policies and support, adequate personnel training, and evaluation of the model's use and effectiveness. Reactions by teachers and administrators conclude the report. (CL)
