Forum on Emerging Trends in Special Education: Implications for Personnel Preparation (4th, Washington, D.C., April 9-10, 1992).
Bunsen, Teresa D., Ed.; And Others
This compilation of papers resulted from a forum which included professionals from higher education, special education, personnel training, medicine, and related services. The forum attempted to identify current trends in education of children and youth with disabilities and to link these trends to the training of personnel. Topics, originally identified from federal grant applications, fell into two categories: first, school-based practices and second, needs of children and youth affected by drugs and alcohol. Outcomes of discussion on these topics resulted in the following papers: "Focus on Special Education: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow" (James Tucker); "A Look at School-Based Practices from the Local Perspective: Decisions Among Friends vs. The Weenie Factor" (Ned S. Levine); "In-Service Training: School-Based Practice" (M. R. Bryan); "The School as the Center of Educational Reform: Implications of School-Based Practice for Research" (Linda A. Patriarca and Patricia Thomas Cegelka); "Developing Teacher Researchers: Preservice and Inservice Considerations" (Mark A. Koorland); "Philosophy, Differences, and Education" (Diane Baumgart); "A Consultant's Use of Qualitative Methods in Implementing Systems Change: A Snapshot of a Ridgeview High School Program in Special Education" (Diane Baumgart); "Issues in Certification Needs" (Philip R. Jones et al.); "Interventions for Infants Born Affected by Drugs and Alcohol" (Marilyn Krajicek); "Examination of Issues Related to Inservice Programming for Personnel Working with Children Who Are Prenatally Exposed to Drugs and Alcohol" (Lyndal M. Bullock et al.); and "Perspectives on Research in Alcohol and Drug Abuse as It Relates to Special Education and Personnel Preparation" (Robert E. Crow). (DB)
