Weintraub, Frederick J., Ed.; McLane, Kathleen, Ed.
This directory of programs that prepare professionals and paraprofessionals for careers in special education is available as both a searchable electronic database and a printed resource. The directory is based on replies to a survey of over 1,800 institutions of higher education as of June 1995. The directory is arranged in alphabetical order by state, and within state, in alphabetical order by institution name. The following types of information are provided: name of institution, school/department name, mailing address, name of department head or program chair, telephone numbers, electronic mail addresses, accreditation status, number of faculty, and program information including program levels and areas of concentration. The electronic version includes all the above information plus standardized descriptors to facilitate retrieval using a variety of database software packages. A subject index allows retrieval by 50 areas of concentration (such as deaf-blindness, mental retardation, augmentative technology, curriculum, school counseling, interpreting for the deaf, infant/toddler intervention, or gifted/talented). Appendices include a key to the abbreviations used in the program descriptions and a list of the descriptors used to index the programs. (DB)
