This booklet is for the parents of exceptional children. It explains the process by which an exceptional child is evaluated, identified and assigned to a program and placement. It also offers general guidelines for parent participation with local school districts and other educational agencies in planning the exceptional child's educational program. These guidelines specifically apply to the parents and children in the Montgomery County, Pennsylvania school system and give information regarding Montgomery County community agencies and resources and Pennsylvania state law. However, this booklet can also be used by parents whose children are served by other school systems since it includes information on Individualized Education Programs (IEP's) and on terminology related to Public Law 94-142. This booklet can also serve as a model for other school districts in their efforts to inform parents on the educational programming of their children. (RF)
