Kolberg, Jeanette
This document presents guidelines for evaluation of early childhood special education programs in North Dakota. Following an introduction, a section considers six general program goals including the significance of families, the need for developmentally appropriate and individually appropriate practice, preference for service delivery in community-based inclusive settings, collaborative teams, coordinated delivery of services, and the importance of culturally competent professional actions. The following sections offer guidelines on evaluating programs for family involvement, effective Child Find activities, effective programs and service delivery models, effectively integrated programs and environments, effective and safe physical environments, and effective administration including personnel and interagency collaboration. Appended are several survey forms that examine the perceptions of the early childhood programs of preschool staff, principals, general education teachers, and parents. (DB)
