A National Survey of Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for Handicapped Children. Volume III: Basic Survey Findings. Final Report.
Pyecha, John N.; And Others
In the third of seven volumes on a national survey of individualized education programs (IEPs) for handicapped children, research findings are summarized. Findings are organized according to 10 basic study questions and touch on the following topics: basic content of IEPs, personnel involved in developing and approving IEPs, special education and related services specified in IEPs, the informativeness and internal consistency of IEPs, and service settings for special services. Among major findings are that 95% of the nearly 3 million handicapped students in public schools had IEPs; slightly more than one third of the IEPs contained all of the 11 information items required by the Act; a wide range of school personnel were involved in the development and approval of IEPs; and that based on a global view of the IEP document, about 40% of the IEPs were informative and internally consistent. Extensive appendixes present supporting data for each of the research questions. (CL)
