Rose, Deborah F.; Smith, Barbara J.
Young Children, v48 n4 p59-62 May 1993
A survey of special education personnel, child care providers, and parents found that barriers to the mainstreaming of preschoolers with disabilities were attitudes concerning (1) "turf" issues for special educators; (2) teacher preparedness; (3) awareness issues; (4) issues of communication and collaboration; and (5) the possibility that disabled or healthy children would suffer from mainstreaming.
