Summary

This document describes a policy forum convened to consider the reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The forum focused on three critical issues: (1) categorical eligibility, (2) initial assessment, and (3) triennial assessment. For the topic of categorical eligibility, comments are summarized in five sections: comments in support of elimination of the categorical approach; comments opposing change at this time; comments supporting revisions within the categorical approach; general comments related to eligibility; and state specific comments. Comments concerning assessment and triennial re-evaluation are also excerpted from the forum discussion. A summary statement by Tom Hehir, Director of the Office of Special Education Programs, Department of Education, cautions that these issues be looked at holistically and that the total system including better personnel preparation must be examined. Appendices include a participant list, the meeting agenda, a paper titled "A Study of the Three Year Reevaluation Process" by Lucian Parshall and James R. Nuttall, and a position statement of the National Association of School Psychologists. (DB)
