This report discusses our estimates of 1 the number of handicapped Indian preschoolers on the 63 reservations with schools administered by the Department of the Interiors Bureau of Indian Affairs BIA and 2 the sufficiency of services they receive. It responds to the requirement in Public Law 100-297 that we review BIAs program for educating these preschoolers. This legislation requires us to determine the number of these preschoolers aged 3 and 4 on 1 all 297 federally recognized Indian reservations and 2 the 63 reservations with BIA schools receiving BIA-funded services. Concerning the preschoolers on these 63 reservations, the act further requires us to determine 1 the sufficiency of the services these preschoolers receive and 2 the number who can be expected to attend BIA schools when they reach school age. This report elaborates on our April 28,1989, briefing to your offices.
