Iowa Criteria for Preschool Handicapped.
Clary, Joan Turner
The document is intended to establish criteria for preschool services so that a handicapped child qualifying for services in one area of the state (Iowa) will qualify for those same services in another geographic area. An initial section examines the state's philosophical commitment to handicapped children. A subsequent section addresses the state's screening and evaluation procedures. State regulations are quoted regarding definitions of specific types of disabilities and criteria for behavioral disorders, hearing impairment, learning disability, mental disability, physical disability, profound multiple handicaps, speech and language impairments, and visual impairments. Disabilities are examined in terms of definitions from the Iowa rules, criteria, and suggested assessments. (CL)
