TEACHING Exceptional Children Plus, v3 n3 Article 2 Jan 2007
Special education programs for low achievers may not always be the right choice. Early identification and intervention could significantly reduce overdependence on special education. The authors reviewed pertinent literature related to the benefits of referral and placement in special education settings, and proposed strategies that would help low achieving, diverse students perform satisfactorily in the regular education environment. Meeting the challenge of addressing the academic and emotional needs of these students requires a real working partnership between regular education and special education. The keystone for completing the arch between the two must be provided by administrators who establish teacher training programs specifically designed to provide the knowledge, skills, and abilities to ensure program success.
