This final report describes accomplishments and activities of a 3-year federally supported project to train and support special education teachers to implement the "Steps to Self-Determination" model and curriculum. Initial training workshops with a total of 18 participating school districts (from Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, and Utah) were followed by technical assistance to local districts as teachers implemented the curriculum. Dissemination efforts provided information about the model to more than 1,000 districts. Specific activities and achievements are specified for each of the project's five goals. Fourteen appendices comprise the bulk of the report. Among these are sample brochures and newsletters, a list of participating schools, a sample progress report and curriculum log, a summary of training evaluation, a sample mentoring form, Web page information, a sample technical assistance log, a summary of technical assistance evaluation, an individual site report, an interview protocol, the "Steps to Self-Determination Idea Book," the "Self-Determination Quality Indicators Assessment Instrument" and reprints of articles by project personnel. A 17-minute training videotape is also provided. (DB)
