UCPA Affiliates Report Implementation Experiences with P.L. 94-142: The "Education for All Handicapped Children Act".
Ross, E. Clarke
Reports from seven United Cerebral Palsy Association affiliates were collected to identify implementation issues and difficulties relating to the Education for All Children Act, P.L. 94-142. Data were compiled for the following major areas: the question of related services, the individual education plan, the due process hearing, least restrictive environment and private school placements, coordination with the private sector, public involvement, state responsibilities, funding sufficiency, preschool incentives, and determination of equal treatment. Among findings were that transportation services are frequently inadequate and have harmful effects on the child; failure of the due process system is a major problem in Illinois; and failures to develop inservice training programs for teachers and associated personnel have been documented in Ohio, Maine, Missouri, California and Maryland.
