One Out of Ten: School Planning for the Handicapped.
The legal and legislative impetus in the education of handicapped students diverges away from restrictive, separate environments and moves toward the least restrictive alternative; that is, toward facilities more like those provided normal children. The "cascade" system is one model for special education delivery that provides a wide variety of services in a number of alternative settings. The system is a continuous series of less restrictive alternatives, which implies that handicapped children can be gradually transferred either away from or back toward the everyday classroom. In order to assist school districts in the development of a cascade of services, this report gathers together various plans for serving handicapped children in school. Each plan is at a different level in the continuum between the unmodified everyday classroom and the residential hospital. Most of the examples are public schools and most involve some kind of cooperation between school districts or between schools and other public agencies. (Photographs may reproduce poorly.)
