Serving Handicapped Youngsters in the Department of Defense School System.
Whitten, Elizabeth
The Department of Defense Dependents Schools (DoDDS) special education programs function with a multidisciplinary team called the Child Management Committee. The Child Study Committee, which usually meets once a week, develops, implements, and monitors comprehensive, multidisciplinary assessment procedures; summarizes assessment results in written form; develops, implements, and monitors each child's individualized education program (IEP); implements specific written procedures to assure that parents are cognizant of all procedural safeguards and to assure that the school follows procedural safeguard provisions; and monitors a record management system. Specific procedures are outlined for screening (including regional screening and Child Find); the referral process (including the prereferral, formal referral, and assessment stages); IEP development; and educational placement. Other components briefly considered are the Guidance Resource Centers and the Special Olympics. (SW)
