To help parents of children in Missouri with suspected handicapping conditions, the booklet provides information and practical suggestions about parental rights and responsibilities. A section on handicapping conditions reviews federal and state definitions of disabilities and describes common characteristics. Parents' role in evaluation is discussed, followed by a summary of the components, development, and implementation of the Individualized Education Program required for each handicapped child. A section on special service delivery touches upon a range of services from the regular education program to state operated schools. Due process considerations conclude the booklet, which includes in its appendixes sample recordkeeping forms, a parent participation checklist, and a list of helping organizations in Missouri. (CL)
