Summary

This report provides a review of programs authorized under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and an overview of potential reauthorization issues, as the second session of the 103rd Congress considers revisions to these programs. The Infants and Toddlers Program (Part H of IDEA) provides formula grants to participating States to assist in establishment and operation of early intervention systems for children under the age of 3. Funds are allocated to States based on the number of children in the general population under the age of 3. As of September 30, 1993, 40 States had fully phased in their early intervention systems. Since fiscal year 1987, appropriations have increased an estimated 302 percent after adjusting for inflation. Congress may turn to health care reform as an option for funding the program as it evolves into full service delivery. The Discretionary Grants Programs (Parts C through G of IDEA) authorize special education research, demonstrations, technical assistance, and personnel training. Since fiscal year 1980, appropriations have decreased an estimated seven percent after adjusting for inflation. Thirty-seven percent of the appropriation is for personnel development. Funds are awarded on a competitive basis. In determining reauthorization, the roles that the discretionary grant programs may play in special education reform will be considered. (JDD)
