Why Do Teachers Refer Pupils for Special Education? An Analysis of Referral Records.
Lloyd, John Wills
Exceptionality: A Research Journal, v2 n3 p115-26 1991
Examination of 382 referral forms for special education found that regular classroom teachers initiated 74 percent of the referrals. Factor analysis of referral reasons revealed five common types of referrals, some interacting with gender and level of students. The factors dealt with written language, externalizing behavior, internalizing behavior, overactivity, and sensory problems. (Author/JDD)
