Reintegration Practices for Behavior Disordered Children in Three Midwestern States: A Preliminary Report.
Peterson, Reece L.; And Others
Preliminary data from a survey of 666 teachers of emotionally disturbed, behavior disordered (ED/BD) students in Iowa, Kansas, and Nebraska are reported. Research on characteristics of the ED/BD student is reviewed along with survey respondents' views on the usefulness and availability of 15 types of information for placement and reintegration. Also reported are rankings of teacher factors in selectinq a site for student integration (attitude toward behavioral problems and behavioral expectations rated as most important); and classroom factors (apparent empathy/tolerance of students and degree of classroom structure rated as most important). It is reported that nearly 70% of the special class teachers indicated they had received training in reintegrating students while only 25% of the regular class teachers who will receive reintegrated students received training. Confusion over responsibilities in reintegration and lack of written procedures for reintegration are also noted. (CL)
