Limited Capacity filling up

This presentation overviews a recently funded Institute of Education Science grant that is examining the complexity of factors that influence, if not shape and determine, educational placement decisions for elementary level students with severe disabilities. These factors (or measures) include academic, social, and behavioral assessments; classroom, cultural, and district demographic and socio-economic variables; school climate; instructional best practices and teaching arrangements; intensity and types of support systems; and student-teacher/classmates' interactions. Central to the purposes of this research is developing an empirical understanding of the relationship between educational placement and learner outcomes. Findings should help districts, schools, and families plan for placement and instructional practices that better serve students with extensive support needs.
