Cleek, M. Knox; And Others
The guide is designed to help regular education teachers understand P.L. 94-142, The Education for All Handicapped Children Act. Information is organized around three major topic areas: (1) the background and major provisions of the law and regulations (including least restrictive environment, evaluation/placement, individualized education programs (IEPs), and funding); (2) effects of the law on the classroom teacher (answers to commonly asked questions about such aspects as IEPs, parent contact, architectural barriers, and class size); and (3) activities to help classroom teachers prepare to implement the law (gaining a better understanding of handicapped students, becoming aware of parents' and other professionals roles under the law, and preparing nonhandicapped students for mainstreaming). Among appendixes are highlights of the regulations. (CL)
