The guidelines present information on Louisiana state standards regarding development and implementation of occupational therapy (OT) and physical therapy (PT) as related services in the education of handicapped children. An introductory section presents definitions and educational background information on OT and PT, and analyzes adapted physical education's relationship to OT/PT. A procedural section examines aspects of OT/PT evaluation (assessment areas and reports) and OT/PT services (including participation in Individualized Educational Programs, recordkeeping, and direct and indirect services). A final section addresses administrative issues such as possible organizational structure, qualifications, certification, budgeting, salaries, and caseloads. Seven appendixes contain sample forms and several short bibliographies. (CL)
