Special Education: A Position Paper.
Pedrini, Bonnie C.; Pedrini, D. T.
The position paper examines trends in the education of handicapped children and suggests an administrative organization for implementation and research purposes. Discussed are the earlier trend toward self-contained special classes and the current trend toward regular class placement, often mandated by the courts. Proposed as an alternative to segregated classes is the resource room with itinerant teachers or consultants offering special instruction to individual or small groups, within the regular class or in the resource room. A need to retain special classes for students exhibiting severely deviant behaviors is noted. (DB)
