Teacher acceptance of the pre-referral process can have a significant effect on students in the classroom. This study examined upper elementary teachers perceptions of the pre-referral process. The pre-referral process was observed and upper elementary teachers were interviewed. Four themes related to upper elementary teachers' perception of the pre-referral process were identified: (a) decisions about referral, (b) impact of referral, (c), frustrations, and (d) suggestions for improvement. The limitations of the study and recommendations for future research and practice are discussed.
