The second of five reports on Project REACH (Regular Education for All Children with Handicaps) describes an inservice approach to the integration of severely disabled students. REACH inservice is ongoing, systematic, and responsive and focuses on attitude and behavior change of both students and teachers. Three chapters address such preliminary considerations as the contribution of inservice to attitude change, planning a peer tutor/special friends programs, and cutting costs through the trainer of trainers model (using an inservice coordinator). Lesson plans for six modules are then presented; modules cover such topics as awareness, civil rights and disabled persons, and labels and myths. The peer tutoring model and its structured interaction approach to creating more spontaneous relationships is illustrated via case histories of participating students. Self-produced audiovisual materials are introduced and suggestions offered about equipment. Two concluding chapters consist of a series of bibliographies (on nonprint and media), disabilities for young people, and professional resources) and abstracts of research on the topic. (CL)
