Integration of Students with Severe Handicaps into Regular Schools.
Stainback, Susan; Stainback, William
Intended for both regular and special educators, the book outlines ways to promote integration between students with severe handicaps and their peers. The first of five sections includes an overview about students with severe handicaps as well as background information on the integration of severely handicapped students. Three chapters in section II address interactions in integrated settings, with separate attention to providing opportunities for interaction, assessing those opportunities, and promoting interactions. Section III concerns ways to educate nonhandicapped students about individual differences and includes discussion of the rationale, assessment procedures, and a model for educating nonhandicapped students. Section IV consists of two author contributed papers on training social and other skill areas in severely handicapped students to facilitate their interaction. A final section provides three papers on additional information useful to classroom teachers in promoting the positive integration of students both in the classroom and the community. (CL)
