The Interface of School, Community, and Health Care Reform: Organizational Directions Toward Effective Services for Children and Youth
Howard M. Knoff
Abstract: A great deal of research and national discussion recently has focused on three areas of reform: school reform, community services reform, and health care reform. Yet, few have talked about how these three reform areas interface, or how this interface can be strategically and organizationally planned toward more effective and efficient services for children and youth. An organizational and planning methodology that coordinates these three reform areas into a unified, interdependent process is described, followed by a discussion of some lessons learned from past school, community, and health care reform efforts. Finally, some special challenges for school psychology are addressed.
