Inservice Training of Early Childhood Specialists/Trainers and Regular Education Administrators. Final Report.
Stile, Stephen W.; Abernathy, Sandra M.
The report describes accomplishments of a project to provide training and support services to regular educators serving handicapped infants and preschoolers. Project activities for each of 3 years are delineated for the following areas: field-based regional workshops/conferences; summer campus-based inservice training; collection of materials on early childhood/special education and a 183-page annotated bibliography; preparation of a book of readings on early childhood/special education; and development of instructional modules to provide the necessary competencies to building principals and other administrative staff in administration and supervision. Unexpected benefits that were realized during this project include the publication of the results of a 50-state survey regarding EC/SPED certification and the development of an early childhood division of the New Mexico Federation of the Council for Exceptional Children. Extensive appendixes include the needs assessment instrument, sample news releases, and syllabi for summer coursework. (CL)
