Fradd, Sandra H.; Correa, Vivian I.
Exceptional Children, v56 n2 p105-10 Oct 1989
Specific interventions such as English language instruction and bilingual education are needed to enable limited-English-speaking students with disabilities to enter the mainstream. Obstacles include lack of awareness of needs and limited personnel training programs that include cross-cultural communication. Transdisciplinary teaming is a cost-effective, appropriate way to expand needed services. (Author/MSE)
