Integration: A Parent Handbook.
Intended for parents, the handbook explores the nature of and rationale for integration with young disabled children. Social and instructional integration are defined and similarities with mainstreaming are noted. Answers are provided to commonly asked questions, such as whether nonhandicapped students begin to imitate behaviors of handicapped students and whether nonhandicapped students will make fun of their handicapped peers. Additional topics addressed include progress for both handicapped and nonhandicapped students, the role of related services, differences between traditional special education classes and full-time integrated classes, and benefits for nonhandicapped children.
