The two articles have the following titles and authors: "Establishing 'Home-School' Relationships with an Institution--A Team Approach" by R. Baum and D. Perner, and "Can Mainstreaming Cope with the System?" by I. Nadler. The first article describes a program which provides self contained classroom instruction for moderately, severely, and profoundly retarded children (8 to 13 years old) during the morning and practical instruction within the residential group in self care and daily living skills during the afternoon. The second article suggests that the school system is not presently organized for successful mainstreaming and that pulling a child out of the class for remedial instruction may not be ultimately beneficial.
