This companion document designed to assist support persons in gaining the necessary understanding, awareness, and knowledge to participate effectively in the individualized education/employment program (IEP) process; five other companion documents; and an inservice guide comprise a series developed for assisting disabled persons in their transition from school to work. Its intended audience includes all school-community support persons involved in the IEP process--field coordinators, school administrators, community agency representatives, and regular teachers. The background and the purpose for having IEPs are presented in a clear and descriptive format. Specific suggestions are then provided regarding how to implement the school-community supportive services necessary for a smooth and successful transition of handicapped youth from education to work at the secondary and postsecondary levels. Sample student needs and support team member needs inventories are included. Step-by-step instructions are also provided for designing and completing the IEP form. A bibliography concludes the document. (YLB)
