Mainstreaming from Plan to Program: From the Perspective of the Mainstream Coordinator. Rationale for Mainstreaming.
Johnson, Florence
Described is the mainstreaming program at the College Learning Laboratory (at the State University College at Buffalo, New York) to further the temporal, social, and instructional integration of elementary grade mentally handicapped children with normal peers. Discussed are these three components of mainstreaming, requirements for successful mainstreaming (such as a diagnostic prescriptive approach to individualized programing), instructional management, and the importance of providing support services to the handicapped child without his leaving the regular class. Criteria are given for selecting handicapped students for the mainstream program and include ability to work on tasks independently, ability to get along with classmates, and academic achievement adequate for inclusion in some regular instructional groups. Also noted are other program components such as the provision of transitional services to foster acceptance by nonhandicapped peers. (DB)
