Individualized Education Programs (IEPs): A Handbook for Vocational Educators.
Phelps, L. Allen; Batchelor, Laurie J.
An overview of individualized education program (IEP) requirements and procedures and a process model for formulating and implementing IEPs are presented in this handbook which was designed for use by vocational education teachers, administrators, and counselors. The first section briefly discusses IEPs as a central focus of Public Law 94-142, the key concepts of an IEP, cooperative planning in the development and implementation of an IEP, and the levels of IEP development. The second major section outlines the activities that vocational educators engage in at various points in the preparation and implementation of an IEP. Steps in the process model discussed include the following: referral of students, informal data collection, evaluation, sharing assessment information, placement decisions, developing and writing the IEP, implementing and monitoring the IEP, and IEP evaluation. The appendices contain a sample IEP and definitions for thirteen terms related to IEPs. (JH)
