Hasazi, Susan E.; And Others
The booklet on mainstreaming looks at the merging of special and regular education as a process rather than as an end. Chapters address the following topics (sample subtopics in parentheses): what is mainstreaming; pros and cons of mainstreaming; forces influencing change in special education (educators, parents and advocacy groups, the courts, federal policy and legislation); the intent of P.L. 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (state requirements, local education agency reguirements, zero reject model of education, individualized educational program, least restrictive environment, nondiscriminatory testing, and due process safeguards); roles and responsibilities of regular and special educators parent-teacher partnership (professional mishandling of parents and parents' mishandling of professionals); implications for the future (research); and gaining community support.
