A Year Long Study of the Frequency of Play Interactions of Handicapped Preschoolers in Mainstreamed and Segregated Classrooms.
Federlein, Anne Cairns
A study was undertaken to observe the frequency of play of 30 preschool handicapped children (physically, emotionally, or hearing impaired) in either a mainstreamed or segregated setting. Each S was observed 6 times over a 7 month period. Results showed a higher frequency of play in the mainstreamed preschool classroom, and that adult initiated play is more frequent in segregated classrooms. Mainstreamed hearing impaired preschoolers had the highest frequency of play in the onlooking category and solitary play was most frequent among emotionally disturbed segregated Ss. Evaluation forms are appended. (PHR)
