Test Your School's IQ: Integration Quotient [and] Test Your IQ: Integration Quotient: For Organizations Serving People with Developmental Disabilities [and] Guidelines for Quality Individual Plans.
Minnesota Governor's Planning Council on Developmental Disabilities, St. Paul.
This document consists of three separately published two-fold brochures. The three brochures provide guidelines for families of persons with disabilities to assess the level of integration efforts by local school districts and special education cooperatives. Guidelines are presented in the form of yes-no questions about administrative commitment, location/transportation, and integrated time and activities. Four readings and five organizational resources are recommended. The second brochure allows for self-examination by an organization in a series of yes-no questions which consider administration, individuals served, and environment. The third brochure offers guidelines for the assessment of written individual plans. Plan objectives are evaluated based on the following criteria: age-appropriateness; community referenced settings; degree of functionality; interaction with nondisabled peers; training for generalization; use of natural cues and reinforcement; a comprehensive assessment; consideration of the individual's choices and interests; and consideration of the family's choices and interests. Six readings and five organizational resources are recommended. (DB)
