Legal IEPs: A Common Sense Approach with Barbara Bateman. [Videotape].
Council for Exceptional Children, Reston, VA. Div. for Learning Disabilities.
In this 2-hour videotape workshop designed for teachers, administrators, parents, and others, Dr. Barbara Bateman answers many key questions that have been raised about Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) since the 1997 amendments to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the 1999 regulations. The videotape reviews the unchanging basics and discusses what an IEP is not. Participants are taught about the heart of the IEP: addressing the unique educational needs of the student. The functional assessment of behavior and the behavior intervention plan are also described. Finally, examples are provided of "wrong headed" IEPs and how they can be made into educationally useful documents for students with special needs. (CR)
