Counseling as a Related Service.
Lornell, Wallace M.
Guidelines in this publication are concerned with the provision of counseling as a related service for handicapped children, and are written to assist school personnel in discharging their responsibilities when the Committee on the Handicapped (COH) determines that a pupil requires counseling. Legal authorization for such counseling is reviewed and the counseling procedure is discussed. The COH recommendation for counseling is described as one section of Phase I of the development of the Individual Educational Plan (IEP). Other Phase I activities are presented, e.g. the basis for the COH recommendation, and a description of the school-based assistance for the handicapped student and his family. Phase II of the IEP is detailed as an outline of specific objectives, goals and evaluation procedures. The various stages of school-based counseling and its sychronization with the IEP are described. Case illustrations of counseling at Prephase I, Phase I, Phase II, and a counseling continuum are provided. Although geographically specific, this document could serve as a useful guide for developing counseling programs for handicapped students. (NRB)
