Integration Models for Students with Moderate to Severe Disabilities.
This book chapter addresses the evolution of integrated classrooms in Manitoba (Canada), with particular attention to two models, the cluster model and the neighborhood school integration model. The cluster model integrates a large number of children with disabilities within a large accessible school. The neighborhood school integration model is described as a technique that integrates special needs students with their chronological-age peers in regular education classrooms in their local community schools on a ratio proportionate to that expected in the general population. The nature, advantages, and disadvantages of each model are described. The paper also describes the establishment of Special Education Management Teams and their decision-making responsibilities.
