Information for this report was gathered from a wide variety of sources. The researchers reviewed materials located in the files of Peace Corps' Office for Programming and Training Coordination, the Information Collection and Exchange office, the ACTION Library and the office of Evaluations, including Country Management Plans, Trainee Assignment Criteria sheets, Project Summaries, and Statistical Summary Quarterlies. We also consulted Peace Corps staff, returned volunteers and country desk officers. A six page survey was mailed to a sample of 65 returned volunteers in special education and rehabilitation; 5 3 responses were received. A questionnaire was also sent to all Peace Corps Country Directors and 32 responses (approximately half) were received.
