Mainstreaming as an Approach to Special Education Services: Organization and Training.
Solomon, Susan R.
Examined in the document is the conclusion of a study on mainstreaming by J. Birch which purports a definite organizational structure for effective delivery of services to handicapped children and the necessity for a training component to assure effectiveness of organizational structure. The first section supports the concept of mainstreaming with a review of literature pertaining to the following issues: the legal precedent for a comprehensive program for an appropriate delivery of educational services, the conceptual basis for a mainstream model to effectively deliver a comprehensive educational program, alternative mainstream models for the delivery of services, and the reason why mainstreaming is the most desirable special education arrangement. In the second section--which stresses the need for appropriate inservice teacher education--the role and expectations of the special educator, the role and expectations of the regular educator, training programs for preparing educators, and alternative training models are reviewed.
