Effective Practices for Inclusive Programs: A Technical Assistance Planning Guide.
Simon, Marlene; And Others
This technical assistance planning guide was developed as part of the PEERS (Providing Education for Everyone in Regular Schools) Project, a California project to facilitate the integration of students with severe disabilities previously at special centers into services at regular school sites and to facilitate the integration of students in special classes in regular schools into general education. The guide emphasizes building the capacity of states, school districts, and school sites to provide quality educational programs to students with disabilities in integrated and inclusive environments by providing a framework of technical assistance activities. The guide stresses local ownership and provides self-assessment checklists to evaluate practices at the state, district, and school building levels. After an introduction and suggestions for using the guide, the guide lists (with references) practices shown to be effective at each level. The next three sections address state level planning, district level planning, and building level planning respectively. Provided for each level is an "Effective Practice Checklist," specification of effective practices and supportive strategies, and a "Resource Planning Guide." Checklists and planning forms are appended. (Contains 406 references). (DB)
