Stephens, Susan A.; Lakin, K. Charlie
This document, the fourth of five volumes of a study of programs of instruction for handicapped children and youth in separate day and residential facilities throughout the United States, contains instruments and materials used in two surveys designed to gather data for the study: (1) a survey of separate facilities; and (2) a survey of State education agency (SEA) special education divisions. The survey of separate facilities comprises the bulk of the volume. It includes: an advance letter and screening form; a verification and screening interview form; a questionnaire for residential facilities with day programs; a questionnaire for day programs; telephone interview forms; reminder letters; reminder call questionnaires; and forms for collection of data on specific diagnostic groups (individuals with visual impairments, hearing impairments, emotional disturbance/behavior disorder, mental retardation, learning disabilities/speech or language impairments, orthopedic (physical) impairments, health impairments, multiple handicaps, and noncategorical or other handicaps). The survey of SEA special education divisions consists of a single form. It covers organization and responsibilities of the division of special education, state funding of special education programs, facilities and personnel standards, compliance monitoring, technical assistance and in-service training, information about separate facilities in the state, goals and priorities of the special education division, and changes since 1975.
