Placement of Twins and Multiples in the Classroom: A Brief Survey of School Counselors' Knowledge and Attitudes
Nilsson, Johanna; Leonard, Lynn; Barazanji, Danah; Simone, Rachel
Journal of School Counseling, v8 n16 2010
This study investigated 65 school counselors' perception of classroom placement of twins and multiples. The results show that most of the participants had twins and multiples in their schools, but that they were neither aware of their school district nor building's policy regarding placement. Most participants supported early separation, already at preschool or kindergarten, and believed that separation would have a positive impact on the children's development. Yet, over 70% reported having no training on issues associated with twins and multiples in the school system. Implications for research and practice are addressed.
