Directory of Selected Early Childhood Programs, 1996-97.
Ramirez, Amy, Ed.
This directory lists selected early childhood programs sponsored by the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services of the Department of Education. Introductory sections provide a user's guide, an overview, and a directory of addresses of key personnel and projects. The directory section then presents a state-by-state listing of projects and personnel in the following categories, the Early Education Program for Children with Disabilities (EEPCD), research grants, and personnel preparation grants. EEPCD project listings are subdivided into five categories: demonstration, inservice training, outreach, research institutes, and technical assistance. Within the research grant and personnel preparation listings, projects are organized by competition type. The directory section also lists key state personnel who administer the Preschool Grants Program (Part B, Section 619 of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act), and the Program for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities (Part H), as well as chairs of the State Interagency Coordinating Councils under IDEA. The section of project abstracts provides descriptions for each project, organized by program category and subcategory. Abstracts include the project's title; competition category; grant number; funding period; fiscal agency; contact information; and a description of target population, program purpose, and program activities. Another section lists research and personnel preparation grants by research grants and personnel grants. Two indexes list projects, first by program category and competition type and then by state or jurisdiction. (DB)
