Abstract

This study examined collaboration practices of resource programs at middle/junior high school levels in southern California. Participants were 124 resource teachers from 69 schools responding to a survey that asked about the collaboration model at their school site. Results indicate that resource programs at the middle/junior high school level are a combination of collaboration and traditional pullout models. The majority of teachers viewed the collaboration model positively. Administration support was evident. Teacher attitude and teacher personality were ranked as more important than the degree of severity of the student's disability as important factors for a successful collaboration model. These results may have important implications for policy decisions regarding integration of students with disabilities into general education programs.
