Chris: What, if any, laws are there concerning this:
I work in a school in which the special Ed classrooms are divided more on convenience, eg one class has 10 kids of various abilities, many different behaviors:
child who is Low functioning, Down syndrome with behavior (throwing etc)
Child who is Low functioning, nonverbal
Children who have Higher functioning autism
Non ambulatory with cp, non verbal.
With the range of behavior and need, I see the teacher struggle to spend any time with the quiet non disruptive child. It’s a chaotic class that should be divided further so each child’s need can be met.
