Kamps, Debra M.; And Others
Behavioral Disorders, v21 n1 p89-109 Nov 1995
A reversal design was used in two elementary classrooms to examine effects of cooperative learning groups (CLG) in reading instruction for three students with autism and their general education peers. Results demonstrated increased reading gains, academic engagement, and peer interaction during CLG conditions. Results also documented the peer-mediated strategy's viability as an instructional arrangement for integrating students with autism. (Author/PB)
