Least Restrictive Environment: Peer Relations--Assessing the State of the Art.
Griffin, Gerald
The author considers research relating to what is presently known about the social interactions between nonhandicapped and special students in integrated environments. Explored are the effects of attitude formation and goal structure of the education institution on the relationship between handicapped and nonhandicapped peers. Suggested is a decision-oriented or process-oriented research-service model. It is concluded that the efficacy of P.L. 94-142 (Education for All Handicapped Children Act), especially the least restrictive environment, is dependent on an understanding of the operating processes of change evident in integration.
