Washington Univ., Seattle. Child Development and Mental Retardation Center.
The report documents progress in 1981-82 toward six objectives of a model preschool outreach center for handicapped children. Activities and accomplishments are discussed for the following six objectives: (1) increase awareness of needs and programs (present at a minimum of 10 state or local meetings); (2) develop, refine, and field test products for dissemination (conduct needs for assessment to determine what new materials are needed by the field); (3) provide training and technical assistance (develop outreach training needs and agreements); (4) coordinate with institutions of higher education for workshops and conferences (attend workshops and conferences to share information); (5) provide assistance to state education agencies and other agencies (work with key state level agencies); (6) work through established networks in an interdisciplinary approach (design and implement interagency agreements, monitor all interagency service delivery). Descriptions of five adoption programs are provided. Two appendixes include letters of support and results of materials and training needs surveys. (CL)
