The Relationship between Chapter 1 and Special Education Services for Mildly Handicapped Students: A Substudy of the National Assessment of Chapter 1.
Moore, Mary T.; Steele, Diane
This report presents nationally representative data to contrast and compare programs developed under Chapter 1 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act of 1981 with special education programs for mildly handicapped pupils in elementary schools, called for by Part B of the Education of the Handicapped Act. The report describes differences between the schools and percentage of students served by each program, and the services provided by each program. It also contains information about schools' provision of dual services to students eligible for both programs, and efforts to coordinate the operation of both programs within the school. The first chapter is titled "The Distribution of Special Education Services for Mildly Handicapped Students" and addresses the distribution of special education services among districts, schools, and grades, especially as this distribution compares with that of Chapter 1 programs. Chapter 2 covers "Enrollment and Identification of Mildly Handicapped and Chapter 1 Students." The third chapter is titled "Instructional Services for Mildly Handicapped Students" and focuses on instructional setting, time and content, and teacher characteristics. The final chapter offers conclusions regarding contrasts and interactions between mildly handicapped and Chapter 1 student services. Includes 22 references. (PB)
