Language Arts Instruction for "Mainstreamed" Pupils.
Savage, John F.; Mooney, Jean F.
Noting that the integration of special needs children into the regular classroom requires changes that differ more in degree than in kind, this paper offers suggestions to language arts teachers for facilitating the mainstreaming of their classes. The first section deals with classroom adjustments and accommodations for children with auditory learning problems, visual learning problems, cognitive problems, emotional problems, and language disorders. The second section discusses the role of the classroom teacher as a member of a multidisciplinary team in the mainstreaming process, specifically in the preparation of individualized educational programs (IEP).
