Decker, Marcia J., Ed.
This directory describes several early childhood projects sponsored by the U.S. Ofice of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS), including project grants administered by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research and project grants in three categories administered by the Office of Special Education Programs: the Division of Innovation and Development, the Division of Personnel Preparation, and the Division of Educational Services, and including the Handicapped Children's Early Education Program. The directory also lists key state personnel who administer the Preschool Grants Program and the Program for Handicapped Infants and Toddlers and the chairs of the state Interagency Coordinating Councils (ICC) under Public Law 99-457. The directory is organized into four sections: (1) the "Introduction" provides an overview of early childhood programs, their purposes and activities, and the implications of Public Law 99-457; (2) the "Directory" section provides a state-by-state listing of projects, state personnel, and state ICC chairs for the 50 states and 10 other jurisdictions; (3) the "Project Abstracts" section provides half-page abstracts for each project, organized according to program category and subcategory; and (4) the "Indexes" provides two guides to project abstracts: one organized by program category and subcategory, the other by state.
