This research paper titled "Requirements For A Successful Inclusion· Program", is a study of full inclusion programs. The introduction covers the history and early laws involving special education. The purpose of the study was to determine the requirements for a successful full inclusion program. There were four questions asked in the study. 1.What are teachers attitudes about full inclusion? 2. What types of children are most effectively included in a full inclusion program? 3. What are the benefits and concerns of parents whose children are in regular and special education classrooms involving a full inclusion program? 4. What types of resources do teachers, parents, or students need for full inclusion to be successful? The need for the study, the limitations of the study, and definitions of the study are included. Chapter II involves a review of the literature, starting with advantages of full inclusion. This section includes the benefits for teachers, students, and parents. Chapter Ill states the reasons against full inclusion. It lists teachers negative attitudes, student concerns, and parent concerns. This chapter also gives resources for teachers, students and parents. Summary, conclusions and recommendations are found in Chapter IV. This touches on the basic questions asked at the beginning of the paper and is followed by answers: What are the teachers' attitudes about full inclusion? What types of children are best included in a full inclusion program? What do parents think and feel about their children being in a full inclusion program? What types of resources do teachers, parents, or students need for full inclusion to be successful? There are four conclusions drawn by the researcher from the literature reviewed in the paper.
