Agard, Judith A.; Barry, Sharon L.
The booklet is designed to help school administrators review and evaluate policies and procedures for facilitating communication with parents of handicapped children. Section 1 summarizes the due process provisions of P.L. 94-142 (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act) and discusses the role which interpersonal communication plays in meeting the information needs of parents and school. Written notice and consent requirements are set forth in terms of content and format. Included within a section on the preplacement evaluation are checklists regarding criteria for written notice and consent as well as a sample agenda for a preevaluation parent/school meeting. A final section describes the initial placement process in terms of the individualized education program (IEP). Information needs of parents and school at the time of the IEP/placement are outlined, criteria checklists are offered, and sample agenda outline for a program planning meeting is provided. (SW)
