This index is divided into two sections: an Index on Federal Regulations and an Abstracts section of Court Cases and Administrative Decisions. Section 1 provides a topic index and comparison of contents and coverage of 16 federal departments with regulations established as of August 1981. Presented in tabular form, this index shows major topics and subtopics; in alphabetical order, names of each federal department whose regulations are cited; Federal Register volume numbers, dates, and Codes of Federal Regulations; specific regulation sections or "part numbers"; and "subpart numbers." Seven topics are covered: Administrative Requirements; Assurances; Discrimination; Education (all but postsecondary); Education--Postsecondary; Employment; Health, Welfare, and Social Services; and Program Accessibility. An appendix lists federal departments with regulations, guidelines, or requirements. Section 2 provides short summaries of court cases (1976-81) and administrative decisions relating to discrimination of persons with disabilities and to compliance with federal and state laws. The format for administrative decisions is topic, plaintiff/defendant, court, reference, and synopsis. Court cases are listed by eight topics: Administrative Requirements, Complaints, Definition of Handicap, Discrimination, Education, Employment, Institution vs. Community Placement, and Transportation. Cases within topics are listed in chronological order. Other information provided includes the plaintiff/defendant, court, reference, and synopsis. A glossary is appended. (YLB)
