Classroom Interventions Employed in Mainstreaming.
Meckler, Terry Anne; Vogler, James D.
With the emphasis on mainstreaming special education students, it was hypothesized that teachers with mainstreamed students, who were instructed on successful classroom intervention techniques, would show significantly more cognitive student gains when compared to teachers who were not instructed. Three hundred eighty-two elementary school students demonstrated significant test study. Results showed that experimental students demonstrated significant test score differences in reading and mathematics. The study also addressed the number of students referred for special education services. Analyses of the data indicated that regular classroom teachers who were trained in the intervention techniques requested fewer services [for] the special education students. (Author)
