This paper summarizes information reported by states for the 1984-1985 school year on supply of and demand for personnel necessary for implementation of the Education of the Handicapped Act. Following a narrative section which synthesizes the statistics, tables give data for numbers of teachers needed and employed, broken down by handicapping condition and divided among 55 states and insular areas. Forty-seven percent of special education teachers provided services in special classes, 37% in resource rooms, 13% in itinerant consulting environments, and 3% in home-hospital environments. Demand data indicate that teachers are needed in almost exactly the same proportion in each setting as those in which they are currently employed. Tables also give similar data for school staff other than special education teachers. (PB)
