Integration Factors and Educational Planning for Developmentally Delayed Children: A Review of the Literature.
Weintraub, Laura S.
The paper presents a review of research issues in serving severely and profoundly retarded students in integrated settings. Five general areas are reviewed: incidence studies, population descriptions, assessment considerations, curriculum approaches (individualization, curriculum focuses, motor skills, self-help and play skills, communication skills, and academic skills), and systems (teachers, resources, parents, and community). A series of recommendations are offered for policy and methodology concerns, assessment and placement approaches, curriculum and classroom management, and systemic supports and resources. (CL)
