The Counselor's Role in Individualized Education Program (IEP) Development.
Wheaton, Peter J.; Vandergriff, Arvil F.
Training techniques available for school counselors which can be utilized in working with regular classroom teachers, special education teachers, placement committee staffings and in the liaison role currently emerging are described. The materials presented address the following areas of concern: (1) recent trends in special education programming, such as the requirements of Public Law 94-142, which have contributed to a changing counselor role; (2) the challenge of the individualized education program (IEP), which details the unique needs of the handicapped child and is accentuated by the requirement that a group of people develop, implement as well as monitor the program; (3) strategies for effective group problem solving which appear to be the responsibility of the school counselor; and (4) the potential for the counselor's skillfulness in human relations to have a positive effect on a staffing committee's group decision regarding IEP's. The appendices contain the inserts which provide the model and forms for use in developing IEP's. (Author)
