Implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act: Sixteenth Annual Report to Congress.
Special Education Programs (ED/OSERS), Washington, DC.
The 16th annual report to Congress describes progress in implementing the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) based on data collection and analysis of the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP). A list of acronyms and an executive summary providing highlights of the report by chapter precede the report's main body. The seven chapters then present comprehensive information on the following topics: (1) school-age students with disabilities served, placement and exiting patterns, and personnel who provide special education and related services; (2) the role of IDEA, Part H and the Preschool Grant Program in meeting the needs of infants, toddlers, and preschool children with disabilities; (3) aspects of the school programs and educational results for students with disabilities in regular secondary schools based on the National Longitudinal Transition Study; (4) special efforts to achieve better results for children and youth with serious emotional disturbance; (5) results for students with disabilities based on work of the National Center on Educational Outcomes; (6) OSEP efforts to assist states and localities including the 3-year staggered review process and training in developing state plans; and (7) a review of the literature on provision of services to Native American students with disabilities. Extensive appendices include: 64 data tables, information on OSEP personnel training activities, a listing of special studies contracts concerned with evaluation of IDEA, summaries and abstracts of state agency/federal evaluation studies programs, profiles of the program agenda, a summary of Regional Resource Center activities, and information on OSEP activities supporting transition services for youth with disabilities. An additional 56 tables and 16 figures provide additional detail. (DB)
