Abstract

This capstone addresses the question, is the use of inclusion is the best service delivery model for elementary learning disabled (LD) students? Inclusion is means LD students are seen by special education teachers in the general education classroom instead of leaving to work in a resource room. The way in which the author of this study has serviced her students over the years has changed from total pull out, to a combination of pull out and inclusion. Recently her district is moving more and more towards the use of inclusion. A literature review covers both the advantages and disadvantages of inclusion and the notion of providing a continuum of services models. A survey of other LD teachers in the district was conducted to explore the use of inclusion. The conclusion of this paper is that a continuum of services should be offered to best meet the needs of LD students.
