Answers to Questions Frequently Asked About the Classified Student. A Professional Supplement Provided through the Central Burlington County Region for Special Education. Special Education Information Series. Booklet #5.
Nissman, Blossom S.
This booklet provides answers to questions that may arise when learning or socially disabled children are placed in regular classrooms. The introduction gives the background of classifying students in the New Jersey school system and lists the twelve classification categories: (1) emotionally disturbed; (2) neurologically impaired; (3) trainable mentally retarded; (4) visually handicapped; (5) auditorily handicapped; (6) educable mentally retarded; (7) communication handicapped; (8) orthopedically handicapped; (9) chronically ill; (10) socially maladjusted; (11) perceptually impaired; and (12) multiple handicapped. Questions from the perspectives of various school personnel are treated in separate categories: regular classroom teachers, special education teachers, parents, school administrators, classified students, and bus drivers. The answers discuss the definition of classification and such topics as individualized education programs, how to approach disciplinary problems, feelings of frustration, and when and where to ask for help.
