Pasanella, Anne Langstaff; And Others
Presented is a programed manual designed to instruct special educators in the development of individualized educational programs (IEPs) for students with exceptional needs. An introductory section covers the program description, objectives of the program, purpose and rationale, and information on how to use the program. Section II is an overview in which the purpose and structure of the IEP and the team approach to its development are reviewed. Section III focuses on the Total Service Plan, the broad outline of the student's annual program, developed or designed at a meeting of the School Appraisal Team or Educational Assessment Service in which parents are included. Components, covered in individual sections, for the Total Service Plan include present levels of performance, long range goals, annual objectives, placement alternatives, special education services, and evaluation and annual review. A fourth section focuses on the Individual Implementation Plan (developed and periodically revised by the teacher in cooperation with specialists and parents) with sections on the following components: short term objectives and learning steps, instructional strategies and techniques, materials and resources, and measurements of student progress. The document contains color-coded sheets--white pages denote general information, green pages denote specific details on very young children, and blue pages denote detailed information related to severely handicapped learners. Appendixes include additional case study examples, a glossary of terms, a posttest, and information on additional resources for each component. (SBH)
