Gable, Robert A.; And Others
This booklet reviews the literature and offers guidelines to assist in the integration of students with behavioral disorders into mainstream settings and the delivery of appropriate instructional services to these students. In Part I, Robert A. Gable and Virginia K. Laycock offer practical advice on how principals, other administrators, and program coordinators can facilitate the integration of students with behavioral disorders. Chapters cover: establishing guidelines for integration; skills needed in regular classes; transition planning; cooperative planning; and enhancing understanding of regular teachers. A conservative approach is proposed which stresses the matching of student capabilities with the setting's demands. In Part II, Sharon A. Maroney and Carl R. Smith consider the teacher's responsibility to provide high-quality instruction, in chapters which address: teachers as advocates; evaluating student progress; generalizing skills; communicating clearly; preparing students for life outside the classroom; strategies that work; teaching responsibility to students; teaching social skills; and improving the quality of life. Includes 56 references. (DB)
