Quirk, Constance A.
This final report describes activities and accomplishments of a 3-year federally supported project that provided in-depth outreach to selected states, local agencies and individuals serving children and youth, K-12, with severe social, emotional, or behavioral disabilities in inclusive, general education, special education, or community service agency settings. The project focused on training personnel responsible for day-to-day supervision of program services to implement the Developmental Therapy-Teaching model. Project activities included dissemination of information about emotional and behavioral disabilities and the model; training trainers to independently assist others in model implementation; site development for model replication; implementing the Trainers Network for Ongoing Outreach to expand existing training; and evaluation of project accomplishments. The project worked with 20 sites and 33 leadership individuals. Through dissemination activities, the project reached 6,175 additional individuals in 41 states and 12 foreign countries. It provided inservice training to 2,194 individuals through 105 conferences and workshops. Twenty programs and agencies, 33 leadership personnel, and 285 individuals received in-depth, extended outreach assistance for model implementation. Seventeen leadership participants completed the Training Trainers certification requirements. Evaluation results indicated positive outcomes on measurable performance indicators. Seven appendices provide project documents, a list of workshops and presentations, agendas, and evaluation results. (DB)
