Technical Assistance Project for Trainable Mentally Handicapped.
Bushfield, Martee; Jurgens, Gene
The report describes a technical assistance (TA) project in Minnesota designed to provide an information exchange system for educator and support personnel serving students with severe handicaps. Professionals (N=142) serving severely handicapped students responded to a survey form. Analyses of the surveys resulted in 132 individuals keynoted as technical assistants in 50 curriculum areas. Twenty-seven diskettes listing TA providers were then distributed to teachers and administrators in three regions. Information is briefly reviewed on the funding mechanism for TA, with an example cited in which a speech therapist requsts TA from another speech therapist. Extensive appendixes include forms and examples of correspondence. (CL)
