Abstract

While Public Law 94-142 required the creation of an Individual Education Program for each school-aged child with a handicap, few studies have looked at whether or not these mandated programs have complied with the regulations. This investigation reviewed the IEPs of 41 Down syndrome children in order to determine (a) whether or not the required elements were present in IEPs, and (b) whether or not long and short-term goals and objectives were written in measurable terms. The results emphasized the need to strengthen the abilities of school personnel to plan and write educational programs for students who are handicapped. A suggestion to limit the number of goals and objectives permitted for inclusion in an education plan for a student is discussed.
