McCabe, James; Capuzzi, Lois
The handbook is intended to provide practical information regarding the building principal's role in the education of handicapped children in Alabama. The leadership role of building principals and their impact on successful special education programs are emphasized. The following aspects are examined (sample subtopics in parentheses): the building (access, special equipment or areas); the staff (training, interaction and coordination, paraprofessional training, special education teachers); the child (child find; tracking; and such specific identification and evaluation issues as confidentiality, multidisciplinary teams, reevaluation, and individualized education programs); the parent (notices, consents, due process hearings, surrogate parents, records); and employment and vocational training (vocational education). Two final sections outline suggested procedures for evaluation and present detailed sample IEP forms. (CL)
