A Handbook for Parents of Handicapped Children.
Becker, Marjory; And Others
Intended for parents of handicapped children in Nevada, the handbook discusses basic education rights under state and federal law. Sections delineate problem solving steps for parents to take when their children either need special education services and are not receiving them or who are in unsatisfactory special education placements. Considered are the following topics: notice and consent, identification, evaluation and reevaluation, individualized education programs, least restrictive environment, educational records, impartial due process hearings, and additional rights and concerns. A final section lists eight tips, including the importance of keeping good records. Names and addresses of contact persons in 17 Nevada counties are supplied. (CL)
