Exemplary Programs for Persons with Disabilities in Transition, Supported Employment, and Parent-Professional Collaboration.
Johnson, David R.; And Others
This resource guide profiles 12 exemplary programs serving people with disabilities through interagency collaboration for transition, supported employment, and parent-professional collaboration. The guide opens with a description of the North Central Regional Information Exchange, a federally funded project that is identifying and promoting adoption of exemplary practices within the Region V states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. The guide outlines the process by which programs are evaluated and awarded exemplary status. The individual profiles of the 12 programs are then provided, containing information about each program's mission, services, target population, larger organization, and staff. Key program components are highlighted and stories of how the programs have worked for specific individuals are shared. (JDD)
