The packet provides a series of activities designed to help schools become familiar with a systematic approach to successful mainstreaming, educational strategies with mainstreamed students, and effective communication techniques. The packet includes a preservice activity and 12 steps for developing a mainstreaming program in the school: (1) introduce LRE (least restrictive environment) to the faculty; (2) identify the mainstreaming committee; (3) assess the school's needs; (4) develop goals; (5) gather student information; (6) write an Individualized Education Program; (7) use an LRE checklist; (8) conduct simulation activities; (9) design working models; (10) implement communication exercises; (11) develop intervention strategies; and (12) review the philosophy of mainstreaming. An additional section is intended for use with parent groups. Each of the steps includes information needed by the trainer to prepare for an inservice session and the information needed by participants. (CL)
