Cooperative Program Initiatives Survey. Results of a Nation-Wide Survey to Identify Existing and Planned Collaborative Training Programs for Allied Health and Education Professionals Serving Children with Handicapping Conditions (A Component of the Project "Training Alliances in Health and Education," 1983-1986).
American Society of Allied Health Professions, Washington, DC.
In 1984, the American Society of Allied Health Professionals (ASAHP) conducted a mail survey of "Cooperative Program Initiatives"--seeking to identify current interdisciplinary training programs established to prepare both health and education professionals to meet the needs of youngsters with handicapping conditions and their families. A total of 350 survey forms were mailed to institutional members of ASAHP, the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, University Affiliated Facilities (UAFs), and other institutions with a high probability of conducting interdisciplinary training for professionals serving youngsters with handicapping conditions. Of the 111 survey responses received, 60 institutions reported that they are currently involved in collaborative training programs; 20 of these institutions have collaborative training initiatives between health and education, while 14 have collaborative training initiatives within either health or education. Twenty-six UAFs reported having collaborative training initiatives. Information is provided on the 60 programs, including: name and location; contact person; brief description of program; and the fields of study involved--allied health, regular education, special education, medicine, nursing, or dentistry. The survey instrument is appended. (JW)
