Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The initiative and premise of this paper stems from an interpretation of the least restrictive environment aspect of PL 94-142, that an increase in appropriate effort should be made to meet the academic and affective needs of mildly handicapped students within the regular classroom. A review of literature foundational to this interpretation is presented, as well as some of the cautions regarding this movement. The option illustrated by the project described herein is that of a resource teacher team teaching with a regular classroom teacher within the regular classroom. Indications are that student academic and affective achievement improved under these conditions.
