Enhancing Success of Mainstream Elementary Special Education Students by Teaching Social Skills and Monitoring Behavior and Academic Progress.
Five elementary special education students were mainstreamed to a regular classroom for portions of their school day. A support team, consisting of the school psychologist, the principal, and the guidance counselor, was established to monitor their progress and provide assistance with both behavioral and educational problems. Peer tutors were provided to help each mainstreamed student with his/her academic skills, and lessons in social skills were also given. Results showed that the students were successful both socially and academically, and that the social skills lessons carried over to the classroom. Results also showed that the participating teachers had a positive attitude towards the mainstreaming experience. (JDD)
