Almond, Patricia, Ed.
This report on special education services in Oregon provides a statement of what has been accomplished and a baseline measure for use in gauging future progress. It offers a long range plan for special education, focusing on secondary and transition programs, severe emotional disturbance, low incidence populations, family involvement, the talented and gifted program, early intervention, and supported education. It describes Oregon's comprehensive system of personnel development and the Oregon Department of Education's responsibility for compliance with federal and state regulations. School-based programs for students with disabilities and students in talented and gifted programs are reviewed. Several state-operated and state-supported programs are examined, including: hospital programs, regional programs, private agency education programs, the Education Evaluation Center, early intervention and early childhood special education, juvenile corrections, Oregon School for the Blind, and Oregon School for the Deaf. Compensatory education services are discussed, such as American Indian education and programs for limited English proficient children. Early childhood education services are then discussed, including parent education, the Head Start Collaboration Project, and health services. The final section describes special projects in the areas of traumatic brain injury, Very Special Arts, Medicaid and Third Party Billing Project, assistive technology, and the National Teacher Examination.
