Support Programs for Students with Disabilities in the Public Schools.
Orange, Leo M.; Brodwin, Martin G.
This chapter has been written as if it were 20 years from today, looking into the future and attempting to outline changes that hopefully will have occurred in public schools, specifically in the area of the provision of support programs for students who have disabilities. It is predicted that the public school of the future will provide full accommodation, allowing students with disabilities a free, appropriate, and equal opportunity for education to the greatest extent possible. To facilitate this, educational administrators and public school teachers will work closely with rehabilitation counselors in developing curricula and assessing what kinds of accommodations can be made within the school. The chapter includes specific sections on future accommodations within the public schools, and the promise of assistive technologies. (Contains 19 references.) (GCP)
