Library of Congress Subject Heading

Resource programs (Education)--Special education; Children with disabilities--Education; Special education


The self-contained special class and the resource room are two of many special educational programs under fire. Each of these delivery systems has come under attack based upon aspects of instruction which the other cannot offer exceptional children. It was the purpose of this paper to describe each of the alternatives to define how each alternative had been intended to aid the exceptional child, to review research comparing each alternative with the regular classrooms in dealing with retarded and slow learning children, disabled children and emotionally disturbed children, and to enumerate the positive and negative aspects of each alternative.
