Birch); the notion of mainstreaming in general and probable effects on the culturally different from the parent's point of view (John A. Aragon); the implementation of change in the schools (Aris A. Mallas, Jr.); the progressive inclusion approach to mainstreaming (Henry J. Bertness); the use of a mainstream team by the Richardson (Texas) Independent School District (Richard F. Hays); the role of the consultant (Susan E. Hasazi); the resource teacher program (Dorothy B. Harrison); mainstreaming in a rural community (Linn Malone); a program of behavioral counseling and individualized instruction with delinquent youths (Susan Colasuonno); planning and implementation of a comprehensive special education program (Don I.
