The final two chapters deal with the IEP in relation to program placements and procedural safeguards. A major portion of the document consists of the following appendixes: a listing of role responsibilities, form letters, a glossary of terms, guidelines for writing goals and objectives, suggestions of general approaches used to evaluate objectives, and a selected bibliography.
