The IEP Primer and the Individualized Program: Preschool through Postsecondary Transition. [Revised.]
School, Beverly A.; Cooper, Arlene
A new and updated edition of a guide to development of Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), first published in 1981, is presented. The guide provides a step-by-step approach to the assessment process, the IEP meeting, writing the IEP, and implementing the IEP. Special emphasis is placed on changes mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, particularly regarding new requirements for preschool IEPs and postsecondary Individualized Transition Plans. The first of eight chapters provides a summary of IEP requirements under the law. The second chapter explains the use of assessment information in developing the IEP. Guidelines for conducting the IEP meeting are offered in the third chapter, and specific suggestions and forms for writing the IEP are given in the fourth chapter. The fifth chapter addresses the placement decision and conference. The sixth and seventh chapters provide help with implementing the IEP and program management. The eighth chapter lists specific "do's" and "don'ts" for parents. Extensive appendixes include a math checklist, a reading checklist, a glossary of 47 terms, sample IEPs, and sample schedules for teachers and students. (Includes a bibliography of 19 items.) (DB)
