Alternative Service Delivery Models for Learning Disabled Students. Number 188.
A literature review is presented on four alternative models of delivering special services to learning-disabled students. The literature search was conducted to identify pedagogically sound, effective, and efficient program approaches as alternatives to resource room programs. The four models identified from a search of the Canadian, American, and British literature, are: consulting teacher model, resource/consulting model, problem-solving teams, and team teaching model. For each model, the following components are discussed: model characteristics, historical background, philosophy underlying the model, types of services, conditions for the success of the model, evaluation studies on the model, and limitations of the model. The review concludes that the ideal model would be an incorporation of the various models by capitalizing on the best elements of each. (JDD)
