Buysse, Virginia; And Others
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v14 n4 p419-35 Win 1994
Assessment of age, disability severity, developmental status, functional abilities, and behavioral characteristics of 162 children (ages 11 to 102 months) found that children enrolled in inclusive programs were more mildly disabled and functioned at higher levels than counterparts in programs exclusively for children with disabilities. Discriminant function analysis revealed that agreement between actual and predicted placement was 75. (Author/JDD)
