Epilog: The Effective Practice of School Consultation

Part of the Issues in Clinical Child Psychology book series (ICCP)


In the 1970s, P.L. 94-142/IDEA wrote into law many of the remedies handed down in previous court cases regarding special education services. The major provisions of IDEA were to guarantee children: (a) the right to a free, appropriate public education; (b) assessment in all areas related to their suspected disability using nondiscriminatory practices; (c) long-term goals and short-term objectives specified in an individualized education program (IEP); (d) due process protections in all matters of identification, evaluation, and placement; (e) access to related services; and (f) education in the least restrictive environment.
