Understanding Mainstreaming through the Perceptions of All Participants: A Case Study.
Butler, Joyce E.; Boscardin, Mary Lynn
Exceptionality, v7 n1 p19-35 1997
This case study examines how individuals construct definitions of handicapped and mainstreaming. The effect of these definitions was examined through interviews and observations of the peers, parents, and educators of a fifth-grade mainstreamed boy with disabilities. Results found that frames of reference can have a substantial impact on program development, student outcomes, and interpretation of mainstreaming effectiveness. (Author/CR)
