Rosenkoetter, Sharon; And Others
A profile is provided of the 40 Local Interagency Coordinating Councils (LICCs) in Kansas, which work to develop and coordinate services to infants and toddlers with special needs and their families, as established by Part H of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The profile is intended to describe the status of Kansas LICCs, to suggest resources for consultation and mentoring among the LICCs, and to aid State leaders in supporting the efforts of Kansas communities. The profile includes summative statistical data; descriptive information on geographic areas covered, history, membership, family participation, paid staff, funding, governance, productivity, and training needs; and evaluative comments. Based on the data presented, recommendations concerning future LICC development are offered to communities and state agencies. Descriptions of individual LICCs are then provided, including target population, affiliations with other councils, year established, funding, meeting schedule, purpose, current goals, accomplishments, and written products. An appendix contains a draft of a Kansas regulation concerning LICC membership and responsibilities. (Contains a list of 12 print resources.) (JDD)
