New York State Education Dept. Albany. Office for the Education of Children with Handicapping Conditions.
The booklet reviews Federal and New York State efforts to ensure that school programs are accessible to handicapped students and presents guidelines for making existing facilities, services, and activities accessible. The requirements of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Education for All Handicapped Children Act are reviewed in the first section. The second section considers the needs of handicapped and nonhandicapped students and of classroom teachers. Alternatives in making buildings and programs accessible touch upon redesigning equipment, reassigning classes or other services, and assigning aides. The booklet concludes with detailed specifications and standards for accessibility. (CL)
