A breakdown of the estimated 44 children from the Eastern Panhandle Counties, shows 29 from Berkeley, eight from Jefferson and seven from Morgan. Funded for $258,000 for fiscal 1978-79, the program will provide individual service plans for. disabled children under seven years of age and for those seven to 16 who are not attending school or never have. The intention of the program, Gov. Rockefeller said, is to make certain that all disabled children 16 years of age or ounger who receive SSI benefits will have access'to a full range of medical, rehabilitative, special education and social services. According to the Social Security Administration, there are more than 1,200 youngsters in West Virginia currently who are eligible for the program. "What we want to do," the Governor explained, "is to provide services that will enhance children's abilities to benefit from training or education that will help them to grow into self-sufficient adults to the extent mt is possible." Children will be referred to the program by the Social Security :Administration, which will notify the parents of their child's bligibility. After initial contact and information gathering by field staff, an individual plan of short and long-term goals for each child will he developed: This plan will be reviewed an- nually by state office and field staff and revised as needed. Initially, Gov. Rockefeller said, emphasis will be placed on those children currently receiving crippled children's services through the Depart- ment of Welfare. Other children will be added to the program as they are referred by the Social Security Administration. SERVICES FOR ELK BRANCH, HALLTOWN PRESBYTERIANS Rev. Fred A.
