The Role of the Physical Environment in the Education of Children with Learning Disabilities.
Bednar, Michael J.; Haviland, David S.
Current thinking on the role of the physical environment in special education is summarized in this report. The material has been synthesized into a "position" that has been developed through widespread contacts with special educators and architects interested in the problem. The paper develops this position in nine topical areas--(1) the concern, (2) exceptionality, (3) learning disabilities, (4) special education, (5) role of environment, (6) environmental variables, (7) environmental conceptualizations, (8) program factors, and (9) directions. The primary attempt has been to underscore the issues and to lay some ground-work for future efforts. [Not available in hard copy due to widespread marginal legibility of original document.] (RK)
