The book describes Pennsylvania's approach for determining placement of handicapped students in the least restrictive environment (LRE), as mandated by P.L. 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act. Separate sections address the following two topics (subtopics in parentheses): the LRE decision process (content for the decision system, the decision system, special considerations in LRE decision making, placement option worksheet, and decision summary checklist); and the LRE mandate (creating educational alternatives and placing students in educational alternatives).
