The institute was created by the West Virginia University Affili- ated Center for Developmental Disabilities (UACDD). The training institute served as the first statewide meeting for the UACDD's Impact 2000 initiative. Impact 2000 is a training initiative for preparing higher education fac- ulty to serve as leaders who infuse content on disability issues into preservice coursework and practi- cal experiences in the new millen- nium. Institute participants examined state-of-the-art information on policy, law, medicine, recreation, and education issues related to dis- abilities. They explored opportuni- ties for utilizing the most up-to- date technology in the classroom, and reviewed methods that re- shape existing curricula to reflect increased emphasis on disability issues. Through these efforts, Im- pact 2000 is attempting to improve the preparation of personnel to work with people with disabilities and their families at community, regional, and state levels. In addition to the UACDD, sponsorship for this initiative comes from the West Virginia De- velopmental Disabilities Planning Council, Department of Health and Human Resources, Depart- ment of Education, and other state agencies and organizations con- cerned with the effective prepara- tion of students to interact with and serve persons with disabili- ties. of the skilled nursing I is to stabilize the patient's and promote healing enable patients to return Physical therapist states, "Our primary Is safety."

Iiowever, slow may have been a real plus because over this period ofthne tim needs of the Center that were defined in 1995 have changed somewhat. Before-'and after- school care continues to be a highly .'taught-after service. In 1996, a portable classroom was rented to house the program and is still in use. However, over the past year, lhe Center has been inundated with calls for infant care. This kind of care was not part of the original 1996 Master Plan, but the need has become obvious. A trailer was donated to the Center. It has been renovated to meet all necessary standards fi)r state licensing, and opened in September of this year to house the new infant care compo- nent. To date, all twelve slots are filled with a waiting list. in place. I|| April, the Center's long- range planning committee began meeting again with Mark Ohrling, architect hired by the Center to de- w, lop the first Master Plan. The task at hand included revision of the plans for the addition to the main building and the second stage of the development of the Master Plan. It is interesting to note at this time that all grant pro- posals submitted for Phase Two of the 1996 plan had been turned down tbr one reason or another. Progress was not happening, things were just not working at all, but, it seems that the reason has . surfitced. The plan for the expan- sion space no longer meets the Center' s needs. The new plans are proving to be incredibly exciting because several concerns have ~ been addressed from this new per- spective.
