The Longitudinal Project: A Component of the Research Institute on Preschool Mainstreaming.
McKinley, John; And Others
Preliminary results are presented from a longitudinal project comparing: (1) children with developmental delays either originally in mainstream preschool programs (N=91) or originally in segregated programs (N=50), and (2) typical children originally in either mainstream preschool programs (N=88) or in nonintegrated regular preschool programs (N=75). Subjects are compared in the following assessment areas: developmental and cognitive functioning; social interaction; social skills; parent ratings of behavior; parent involvement and satisfaction with their child's educational program; parent opinions about integration; teacher opinions about integration; and administrator opinions about integration. In general, most measures indicated no significant differences between children with developmental delays in mainstream and segregated programs, or between typical children in mainstream and segregated programs. Data about parent attitudes toward integration and parent involvement reflect some changes over time. Teachers and administrators held positive attitudes toward mainstreaming. (JDD)
