Guralnick, Michael J.
Journal of Early Intervention, v18 n2 p168-83 Spr 1994
A survey of 281 mothers of young children with cognitive delays, communication disorders, physical disabilities, risk of delays, or typical development revealed widespread support for the benefits of mainstreaming and a substantial number of perceived drawbacks. Mothers' perceptions of mainstreaming were similar across family demographics, child characteristics, and type of program placement. (Author/JDD)
