Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison. Div. for Handicapped Children.; Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison. Bureau for Pupil Services.
The handbook is designed to explain to parents of handicapped children in Wisconsin their roles and responsibilities in special education procedures of identification, evaluation, and placement. Specific aspects of Wisconsin state law are explained as well as federal statutes (P.L. 94-142 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973). The following aspects are addressed (sample subtopics in parentheses): identification (child find, screening, referral); evaluation (notification and permission); individual education plan development (contents); placement (notice of intent); disagreements (mediation, hearing or appeal process); complaints (state, federal, where to file); and due process (evaluation procedures, independent evaluation, least restrictive environment, complaints, hearings, confidentiality). A list of Wisconsin organizations for parents of handicapped children is followed by a glossary of approximately 85 terms. (CL)
