Six State Collaborative Projects. State Series Paper (Number 3).
The report describes efforts in six state projects demonstrating that communication and cooperation in state and local service delivery systems can improve services for children, especially preschoolers, with handicaps. State responses to questions of changes attributable to the project, additional resources received to continue the project, and useful project publications are summarized. The projects are characterized by concentration of efforts on the community level, focus on the preschool population, and emphasis on conducting inservice training. Abstracts of the six state collaborative projects note the agencies involved, briefly describe the project, review strategies and methodologies, discuss predicted outcomes, and conclude with an explanation of interagency collaboration.
