Northeast Regional Resource Center. Final Report.
Trinity Coll., Burlington, VT. Northeast Regional Resource Center.
This document reports on activities of the Northeast Regional Resource Center (Vermont), which has provided technical assistance, consultation, and training concerning educational programs and services for children and youth with disabilities, to state education agencies and through the state agencies to local education agencies. Specific sections address the Center's goals and objectives, its approach and basic assumptions, activities, evaluation findings, and impact. Five types of activities were conducted: (1) identifying and documenting significant needs, problems, issues, and emerging trends; (2) developing state-specific, multistate, and region-wide technical assistance plans; (3) designing and delivering technical assistance; (4) coordinating program activities with other Regional Resource Centers and related technical assistance projects; and (5) project administration. Among the areas addressed by the Center's technical assistance activities were the following: improving options for students in the least restrictive environment while coordinating with "restructuring" efforts; planning comprehensive systems of personnel development; creating mechanisms for increasing parental involvement in the educational process; focusing on the needs of racial, cultural, or linguistic minorities; implementing program evaluation models, procedures, and techniques; applying new technologies to instruction and administration; and developing models, programs, and services for seriously emotionally disturbed students. Brochures describing the Center and the Institute for Program Development are attached. (Author/DB)
