This monograph presents long-range plans of South Carolina's "Continuum of Care for Emotionally Disturbed Children" program, which provides community based services to children and adolescents with severe disturbances, through coordination and utilization of public, private, and individual services. An executive summary notes that 323 such clients were receiving services from the Continuum of Care in 1992; it also notes that individualized therapeutic services resulted from over 1400 contracts negotiated in 1992 and highlights activities to evaluate current and potential service accessibility. Other sections of the monograph provide: (1) a review of client demographic and disability characteristics; (2) an assessment of the needs of current clients; (3) a review of client progress and change; (4) a review of services provided by other agencies and the likelihood of additional service provision to severely emotionally disturbed children; (5) a review of long-term environmental trends likely to impact this population and the Continuum in the coming decade; (6) a review of services provided by the Continuum through program and individual contracts; (7) a summary of the Continuum's Fiscal Year 1992-93 budget; and (8) a series of proposed budgets and detailed budget priorities for increases presented in regional and statewide aggregate formats. Appendices include the text of the program's statutory authority; a map of Continuum of Care regions; the Continuum's mission statement; basic tenets of the Continuum; a statement of principles; definitions of the array of services provided; and a client progress survey form.
