Maintaining Least Restrictive Environments and Least Restrictive Alternatives for Handicapped and Nonhandicapped Students in Regular Education Classrooms.
Evans, Robert J.
Social skills instruction and appropriate individualization of instruction can help mainstreamed handicapped children become accepted by their peers. Modeling (practicing demonstrated behaviors), prompting (correcting behavior when signaled), and feedback (giving corrective guidance) are used to teach the handicapped student such important social skills as accepting responsibility for one's actions, solving problems, negotiating, engaging in conversation, following instructions, accepting and giving feedback, and resisting peer pressure. In order to provide this instruction in the least restrictive environment, the classroom teacher must have adequate preservice and inservice training. (CL)
