Exceptional Children in Regular Classrooms.
Reynolds, Maynard C., Ed.; Davis, Malcolm D., Ed.
Presented are 16 brief essays concerned with strategies of heterogeneous grouping, administrative change, teacher qualifications, and teacher education for improving regular educational services for handicapped children. The essays were written to widen perspectives on the means by which the Special Education Training Branch of the Bureau for Educational Personnel Development (BEPD) might accomplish its mission. Authors address themselves to the following issues: relationship of regular and special education; integration of regular and special education; effects of integration of regular and special education; administrative change needed for integrating regular and special education; qualifications of regular teachers in teaching exceptional children; additional training for regular teachers; supportive help for regular teachers; school structure; roles of school psychologists and other personnel workers in an integrated system; training programs needed by regular teachers that can be provided by BEPD; and existing programs of integrated regular and special education.
