Parent Surrogate Handbook.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore. Office of Special Education.; Mid-Atlantic Regional Resource Center, Washington, DC.
The manual is intended to help parent surrogates carry out their role by providing an overview of the special education decisionmaking process in Maryland. The parent surrogate is responsible for representing the child in all matters relating to identification, evaluation, educational placement, and programing. Roles of the parent surrogate are specified for the following areas of the decisionmaking process: referral and screening; evaluation by the Admission, Review, and Dismissal Committee; individualized education program (IEP) development and student placement; initial and annual IEP reviews; and reevaluation. More than half of the handbook is composed of two appendixes with such information as state and national resources for information and assistance, definitions of handicapped children, and a description of the continuum of services offered in Maryland.
