Research Synthesis on Educational Strategies for Students with Severe Intellectual Disabilities. Technical Report No. 3.
Horner, Robert H.; And Others
This monograph presents a synthesis of the literature on the educational tools and procedures used with students who have severe intellectual disabilities. The review focuses on how: (1) the goals of education for students with severe intellectual disabilities are consistent with the educational goals of all students; (2) current school reform recommendations are often inconsistent with procedures that are effective for students with severe intellectual disabilities; and (3) the need exists for curricular and organizational tools to accommodate these students within the regular school. Emphasis is on strategies effectively used with this population. Specific sections address: the goals of education; strategies for restructuring schools; strategies related to effective staff roles; strategies related to curriculum; strategies related to instructional delivery; strategies for behavioral support; and strategies for social inclusion. (Contains approximately 225 references.) (DB)
