Many school districts are moving away from segregation to the integration of children with disabilities in the regular classroom. For years, it has been an administrative responsibility, but school administrators cannot accomplish this task alone. They must provide effective leadership abilities to stakeholders concerning mainstreaming children with disabilities. Issues such as, understanding the meaning of integration, legal mandates, instructional procedures, and related services must be discussed, understood, and supported by all stakeholders. This book details strategies for the inclusion of disabled students in the mainstream. Written for directors of special education, supervisors, consultants, superintendents, principals, coordinators of education, research directors, psychologists, counselors, social workers, site-based management teams, and teachers. Can also be used as a textbook for courses in administering classes for individuals with disabilities.
