School Psychologists in IEP Development.
Lee, Steven W.; Worl, Angela
The passage of Public Law 94-142 (Education for All Handicapped Children Act) in 1975 had a great impact on the role of school psychologists. One of the controversial requirements of Public Law 94-142 alluded to the involvement of school psychologists in Individualized Education Program (IEP) development. This study was undertaken to obtain general information about the involvement of school psychologists in IEP development and meeting attendance. It also evaluated three factors that may play a role in school psychologists' involvement in the IEP development process: years of training or experience; work load; and usefulness of information provided. Questionnaires were completed by 214 members of the National Association of School Psychologists. The findings revealed that school psychologists were involved in IEP planning and consistently ranked third to the special education teacher and parents in IEP meeting attendance for both original and re-evaluations. School psychologists reported being less involved with the development of short-term than long-term goals in special education. (Contains 30 references and 6 tables.) (NB)
