This document reports on a 1998 conference on technical assistance and dissemination attended by representatives from the Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), Technical Assistance and Dissemination (TA&D) projects, and regional resource centers. The conference was intended to increase knowledge concerning TA&D, exchange information among TA&D colleagues, and contribute to the current administration's education initiative. The report has 3 parts. It begins with an overview of the results from the Interview Design Process Plenary Session, which aimed to foster awareness building and networking about the collective OSEP TA&D Network goal of improving results for children and youth with disabilities and their families. This part also includes summaries of the plenary sessions and brief reports of the concurrent sessions. The second part has summaries from the work group discussions on elements of the president's education initiatives and possible collaborative activities in support of these initiatives. The last part summarizes discussions in the focus group sessions. The report ends with the following appendices: a conference agenda; a participant list; the OSEP logic model; selected requirements of the Government Performance and Results Act; and the "Report from the Collaborative and Innovative Uses of Technologies Workgroup" (Patti Barkin and Joan Danaher).
