The manual outlines Michigan's procedures in providing special education services to students with emotional impairments. The first section depicts the special education process, beginning with pre-referral intervention strategies and referral and proceeding to evaluation, the individualized educational planning committee (IEPC) meeting, delivery of programs and services, the individual education plan (IEP) review, and 3-year reevaluation. Additional considerations in the process are parent involvement, eligibility, and the multidisciplinary evaluation team report. Subsequent sections focus on the following topics: classroom programs, site selection, and design; the classroom teacher (certification, roles); teacher consultants; performance objectives (relationship to IEPs); support services; homebound and hospitalized services; transportation; alternatives to suspension; and program evaluation. Among appendixes is a sample multidisciplinary evaluation team report form. (CL)
