The first of two issues of the newsletter addresses issues of learning-disabled children and juvenile delinquency through three articles. The first, "Lost in the Juvenile Justice System: Learning Disabled Children and Juvenile Delinquency," by Jeffry Gallet, a learning-disabled judge, and Julie Gilligan, looks at misunderstandings and lack of services in New York. The next article, "Educational Outreach Through the Power of the Courts" by Thomas Olin, a learning-disabled Assistant District Attorney, describes a Bronx County program which identifies defendants needing educational and vocational assistance. The last two articles are "Learning Disabled Children In the Family Court System: An Advocate's Perspective" by Rita Horvath and "Special Education Students Have 'Dreams,' Too" by Arlene Mark. The second newsletter issue provides three articles on mainstreaming. "The Mainstreaming of Special Education" (Lawrence Gloeckler and Rebecca Cort), discusses the need to seek one continuum of both regular and special educational services and reports on reorganization and training efforts in New York. Next, "Mainstreaming: Designing a Model That Can Work" (Judith Fagin) describes one program which focuses on teacher awareness and training, service delivery, screening and evaluation, and curriculum design. The third article is "The Fisher-Landau Program: A Model Program for Educating Bright Children with Learning Problems in the Mainstream School Setting" by Susan Etess. (DB)
