Clarification of P.L. 94-142 for the Paraprofessional Support Staff.
Holland, Richard P.
The guide is designed to help paraprofessionals and support staff understand P.L. 94-142, The Education For All Handicapped Children Act. Information is presented for three major topic areas: (1) purpose and background of the law (including discussion of such major components of the regulations as individualized education programs (IEPs), due process, child find, and evaluation/placement); (2) effects of the law on paraprofessionals, support staff, and volunteers (answers to commonly asked questions about such aspects as staff responsibilities, IEPs, and liability); and (3) activities to aid in the preparation of paraprofessionals, support staff, and volunteers for implementation of P.L. 94-142 (becoming more sensitive to the nature and needs of handicapped students, learning to better manage behavior problems, and becoming more aware of teamwork). Highlights of the regulations are appended. (CL)
