The Illinois Primer on Individualized Education Programs.
Witkowsky, Jack; Cronin, Joseph M.
The document, half of which consists of appendixes, discusses the development and implementation of individualized education programs (IEPs) for handicapped children in the state of Illinois. A sequential presentation of the Illinois rules and regulations applying to IEPs is provided, and the major mandated steps in the development if IEPs are covered, from initial screening through program evaluation. An 18 step model for developing a written IEP is presented, and both mantated and recommended components of an IEP are described. In keeping with the mandated multidisciplinary team approach to the IEP process, roles and responsibilities are defined for the following groups of special education personnel: directors of special education, principals, representatives of state operated or private programs, school psychologists, speech and language clinicians, special and regular education teachers, school social workers, school nurses, guidance/special education counselors, vocational/career educators, parents, and personnel providing other related services. Some critical issues pertaining to the IEP process are examined in question and answer format. Appendixes include sample IEP program forms, a glossary of terms, lists of national and Illinois organizations, names and addresses of Illinois IEP Task Force members, and references. (DLS)
