For each of the three models, a personnel preparation program was selected for in-depth case study research. The three programs included: a preservice program in a university setting, a statewide outreach and inservice program, and a program representing the joint efforts of an organized parents group and a professional organization. Analysis of case study information yielded recommendations for policies affecting personnel development.
