Lesson 4 & 5 : Intervention Efforts for Children With Developmental Challenges

Part-Time Special Classes

Under this plan, exceptional children are enrolled in a special class but receive some, if not a great deal, of their academic instruction in the regular grades. In this way exceptional children are to varying extents integrated into general education known as the cooperative plan in the area of visual disability. The major and important difference between this and the resource room plan lies in where the pupil has his homeroom.

Like the resource room teacher, the special class teacher, who integrates her pupils into regular instruction must be specially able. She needs to be good in human relations as well. She must recognize that simply integrating her pupils physically into the regular grades neither assures their social acceptance for adequate school progress.
