This final report describes accomplishments and activities of a federally funded project to meet the leadership support needs of parents of children with disabilities serving on statewide interagency coordinating councils. The project was based on a leadership support model based on input from parent leaders in 25 states which focuses on the following key areas: reciprocal (cultural/ethnic) outreach; the notion of leadership and how it applies to a constituent representative; strategies for understanding complex organizational systems; gathering data; recognition of one's own approach to conflict management; and using personal experiences to amplify policy issues. The project also developed a process for conceptualizing and designing leadership training on the state and local levels. The project provided intensive leadership support to 79 representatives from 14 states through the following activities: (1) three national Leadership Institutes; (2) technical assistance to states participating in the Institutes; and (3) ongoing technical assistance to all states engaged in leadership development activities including a national newsletter, a series of topical teleconference calls, a resource database, an Internet-based listserv, and a project Web site. An attached table summarizes project activities in the 14 states. (DB)
