Vermont State Dept. of Education, Montpelier.
This report provides brief descriptions of a variety of community and educational programs for children and families with special needs, especially at the early childhood level in Vermont. Part 1 describes six programs characterized as community/regional-state partnerships. Part 2 describes family-centered resources, supports, and services, especially early childhood programs. The early childhood programs are grouped into those focused on infants, general early childhood, and "Success by Six" community projects in 17 areas. Also described in the family-centered resources section are several programs grouped under the category of "educating children for success," programs supporting the health and other human service needs of children, and programs to assist with transitions to the workforce. Part 3 describes three programs which maximize federal Medicaid funding to enhance services; Part 4 discusses a program in professional preparation and development; and Part 5 outlines a program to monitor progress toward desired outcomes in Vermont programs for children and families.
