Petit, Constance C.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Azusa Pacific University
This study presents the findings related to the use of homebound instruction as a special education service model and to the practices and perceptions of service providers in the areas of personal effectiveness, model effectiveness, and administrator support. A self-administered survey was distributed to a national sample of 484 educators from two organizations; 192 participated. In addition to descriptive statistics, data were analyzed using independent sample t-tests, correlation models, and multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA). Key findings from the research are: (a) there is a widespread lack of training which pertains to homebound instruction, (b) the instructional time students receive is minimal, (c) being trained to provide this service results in statistically significant higher perceptions of personal effectiveness, and (d) positive correlations exist between perceptions of model effectiveness, personal effectiveness, administrative support, and impact to students.
