Pennington, Robert; Courtade, Ginevra; Jones Ault, Melinda; Delano, Monica
Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, v51 n3 p294-306 Sep 2016
Despite encouraging changes in the expectations of programming for persons with moderate to severe intellectual disability (MSD), data suggest that programs for these individuals are still lacking in several critical areas. Building administrators play a key role in promoting high quality programs for students with MSD within local schools but may have little specialized knowledge in this area. The authors outline five essential features of quality educational programs for this population and provide a framework upon which building administrators can assess and support local programs.
