Considerations in the Integration of Behaviorally Disordered Students into the Regular Classroom: Teacher Concerns and Considerations.
White, Maureen A.
The paper presents results of a survey regarding the role of the teacher of emotionally disturbed (ED) children in reintegration of students into the regular classroom. The following concerns which were identified in the study are addressed: (1) objective means of determining readiness for reintegration; (2) clearly defined procedures; (3) clarifications of responsibilities of individuals; (4) guidelines in the selection of the teacher or the classroom; (5) intentional, systematic strategies for facilitating generalization of learning (academic and behavioral) between the ED class and the regular classroom; and (6) inservice training, both for the ED teacher in how to reintegrate students and for the regular class teachers in how to work with ED students. Listed among criteria for determining degree of individualization which can be provided to students are the social environment, degree of structure, and teaming arrangements. The survey of regular and special class teachers is reported to indicate four top priority inservice topics related to ED students--behavioral characteristics, management techniques, teaching techniques, and learning characteristics.
