A Study of the Implementation of P.L. 94-142 for Handicapped Migrant Children. Final Report.
Pyecha, John N.; And Others
As part of a seven volume study on the individualized education program (IEP) for handicapped students, the document describes a telephone survey to determine the extent to which 153 handicapped migrant children were identified in and had IEPs prepared in different schools. Information is presented in five headings: student charcteristics, student assessment, development of IEPs, transmission and utilization of IEP related information, and continuity reflected in IEPs. Among conclusions drawn are that the different schools in which handicapped migrant students enroll are not consistent in identifying and preparing the students' IEPs; IEPs are developed less frequently for handicapped migrants than for nonmigrants; and although only a small percent of the handicapped students have IEPs developed at more than one of the schools in which they enroll during an 18 month period, when multiple IEPs are prepared, they reflect general agreement in assessment results and service continuity. Detailed appendixes include a description of the survey plan and a telephone interview guide. (CL)
