Abstract

The authors contend that least restrictive environment involves more than merely placing severely handicapped students in regular schools. In addition to regular school placement, systematic efforts to promote positive interactions between severely handicapped students and their nonhandicapped peers must be made. An array of formal and informal methods for promoting integration, directed toward both school staff and students, are provided to assist teachers of the severely handicapped in systematically integrating their students into the regular school milieu. © 2009 by TASH.
