Creative Approaches to Compliance with P.L. 94-142 for H/H Programs: Under the Law, Who Is to Be Served and by Whom?
Grandstaff, Carole L.
The rights of hospital/homebound children under P.L. 94-142 (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act) are considered, and a model in which service is delivered through a full-time instructor whose sole job responsibility is teaching students in homes and hospitals during school hours is seen to be most favorable. Other delivery alternatives considered are the use of part-time teachers or hourly employees, the combination of full- and part-time teachers, the after school teacher who is contracted by the district on an hourly basis to provide instruction after the normal school day is completed, the "School to Home System" which consists of a hookup between a classroom and the student's home using the telephone, and the teleclass in which a telephone conference enables the teacher to reach several students at one time in a teaching situation similar to that in a classroom. Advantages and disadvantages of each model are pointed out. (SBH)
