Mid-East Regional Resource Center, Washington, DC.; West Virginia State Dept. of Education, Charleston.
Guidelines for the implementation of individualized education programs (IEPs) for handicapped children are provided. An introductory section details the mandates of Public Law 94-142 (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act) and defines the components of the IEP and a list of eight exceptionalities (with characteristics of each). Section 2 discusses identification, screening, and evaluation, including such topics as assessment, definitions of 60 terms, the use of observation, and standardized tests. The third section explores writing annual goals and behavioral objectives and the development of task analysis. The fourth section considers the criteria for the selection of educational materials and includes annotated references for approximately 30 selected materials. Planning instructional strategies in areas such as individualizing the program and managing instruction is the topic of the fifth section. The final section examines strategies and processes for reevaluation and provides sample checklists and examples of IEP forms. Extensive appendixes include material in the areas of tests, checklists, and inventories; learning; management and behavior; and parent input in the IEP process. (PHR)
