Pupil Personnel Services and PL 94-142.
Noble, Vicente N.; Kampwirth, Thomas J.
P.L. 94-142 is the most significant federal legislation ever passed in regard to exceptional children. It mandates a free and appropriate education, including related services such as counseling (as needed), for every exceptional child up to age 21. The counselor's role may include direct work with children referred for behavioral social adaptive problems, as well as indirect work such as contributing to the discussions of the School Assessment Team or writing the Individual Educational Plan (IEP). Counselors will need to take a proactive stance in regard to P.L. 94-142 if they are to insure that their unique contributions to exceptional children will be utilized. (Author)
