Strategic Planning and Implementation of a Project that Supports an Early Childhood Special Education Team in Their Implementation of Recommended Practices.
Cross, Alice Frazeur
This practicum aimed to facilitate development and implementation of recommended practices by an early childhood special education team working with a University Affiliated Program (UAP). A site development project was being developed in response to the recognition by UAP center staff that their activities were not sufficient in helping early childhood programs implement recommended practices. The practicum was designed to close four gaps that had been identified in the site development project: (1) the absence of an organizing structure; (2) the need to gather information about the site team; (3) the need to identify and implement effective staff development strategies; and (4) the need to identify barriers to implementation of recommended practices. A strategic plan was developed by the project team, including a vision, values, operating principles, goal, objectives, and time line of activities. Although delays impacted project implementation, a strategic plan was developed, a self-study by the site team was nearly completed, procedures and forms for selecting staff development strategies were drafted but not tested, and barriers to implementation of recommended practices were identified but plans to resolve them had not yet been made. Appendices contain various practicum administration materials. (Contains approximately 65 references.) (JDD)
