The EEN Triangle of Support: A Guide for Parents. A Parent Handbook That Explains Handicapped Education and Parental Rights and Responsibilities.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison. Div. for Handicapped Children.
The booklet describes, for parents, Wisconsin's policies regarding identification, evaluation, and placement of children with possible exceptional educational needs. Information on identification touches upon child find, screening, and referral. The role of the multidisciplinary team in evaluating and developing an individualized education program is considered. Disagreement about placement is explained to lead to mediation or a hearing or appeal process, while complaints about services may lead to filing of a complaint. Due process procedures and rights regarding notice, consents, least restrictive environment, records, confidentiality, and placement are discussed. Following a list of organizations in Wisconsin for parents of handicapped children is a glossary of approximately 100 special education terms. (CL)
