Mind the Gap! Implications of a Person-Environment Fit Model of Intellectual Disability for Students, Educators, and Schools
Thompson, James R.; Wehmeyer, Michael L.; Hughes, Carolyn
Exceptionality, v18 n4 p168-181 2010
A person-environment fit conceptualization of intellectual disability (ID) requires educators to focus on the gap between a student's competencies and the demands of activities and settings in schools. In this article the implications of the person-environment fit conceptual model are considered in regard to instructional benefits, special education service delivery, assessment and planning processes (including developing Individualized Education Programs), and the roles and responsibilities of special and general education teachers.
