The Peer-Peer Program: A Model Project for the Integration of Severely Physically Handicapped Youngsters with Nondisabled Peers.
Friedman, Ronald S.
Described is the development and evaluation of a demonstration project in which severely physically handicapped sixth grade children in a special school, are integrated into specific activities with their nonhandicapped peers in a nearby public school. Planning sessions are discussed, and such shared activities as the physical fitness group, swimming group, and nutrition group are reviewed. Results of the Attitudes Towards Disabled Persons Scale--Revised for Children indicated that nondisabled children involved in the Peer-Peer Program showed a significant positive shift in attitudes when compared to a control group.
