Classroom Perspectives of LD and Other Special Education Teachers.
Algozzine, Bob; And Others
The extent of similarities and differences among educable mentally retarded (EMR), learning disabled (LD), and emotionally disturbed (ED) children was investigated with 75 resource room teachers. Teachers were asked to provide information regarding the children in their classes and some of their program activities; equal numbers of each type of teacher were sampled on two occasions. An analysis of the results indicated many similarities and some differences among the teacher responses. Similarities included the importance of affective needs and the need to reduce inappropriate behaviors. Differences tended to relate to service delivery and included seeing LD children for more time than EMR or ED children. (Author/DB)
