Regular Classroom Placement Options for Students with Severe and Multiple Special Needs: A Potential Solution to a Rural Problem.
Zeph, Lucille Annese
Rural school districts face special problems in serving children with multiple/severe low incidence handicaps. One option not usually considered for this population is full time regular class placement. Five models may be used in regular class placement: (1) team teaching in which two appropriately certified teachers share management responsibilities; (2) parallel teaching in which two teachers share the space but maintain separate roles and responsibilities; (3) regular classroom based tutorial in which the regular classroom teacher merely shares space with the tutor and student; (4) separate tutorial with regular classroom support, in which the tutor and student share the regular classroom for certain periods; and (5) regular classroom placement with support services, in which a trained teacher assistant works with the student in the regular classroom. Some models may be more appropriate for certain age groups, and all require a degree of staff cooperation and sharing of school resources. (CL)
