Directory of Programs for Preparing Individuals for Careers in Special Education. 1997 Edition.
Paschall, Albert A., Ed.
This federally funded directory lists special education teacher preparation programs in each state. The information was collected through a survey sent to institutions of higher education. The directory also includes lists of related services programs, but only when the programs fall under the college or department of education at the institution of higher education. Entries are arranged in alphabetical order by state, and within state in alphabetical order according to institution name. The following types of information are provided: institution name, school/department name, mailing address, name of department head or program chair, telephone numbers, electronic mail address, accreditation information (whether the institution's programs have been approved by the Council for Exceptional Children for the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education accreditation process, and/or whether the institution is state-accredited), number of full-time and part-time faculty, institutional type (whether the institution is an historically Black college or university or other minority institution), and program information (includes program academic levels and the names of each of the programs or areas of concentration offered at each level). A subject index lists programs available for different disabilities and concentrations. An appendix includes the survey form. (CR)
