Intervening with Developmentally Disabled Children in a Regular School Setting.
Wyne, Marvin D.
The paper focuses on the integration of 36 moderately and severely retarded children (3 to 16 years old) from a private self-contained special school to a public elementary school. Addressed are the participants and procedures, settings, preparation for integration, and the integration experience. Noted among the implications of the integration experience are the need to prepare parents as well as children for the transition; the value of pre-integration planning and preparation with administrators, teachers, and children in the less restrictive setting; and the importance of ongoing systematic evaluation research.
