Least Restrictive Environment
The Paradox of Inclusion
Lawrence M. Siegel

Schools and parents have been dealing with student placement issues under the IDEA. By following the struggle of one family as they attempt to remove their child from the mainstream and place her in a state school for the deaf, the author provides an analysis of the law that controls her placement. This book shows how, even with the best of intentions, instituting full inclusion may leave some deaf students isolated in a classroom full of children.

The book illustrates:

This book presents compelling arguments for educating some children outside the regular school environment.

Psychological Perspectives on Deafness
Volume I (1993)
edited by Marc Marschark and M. Diane Clark

Focusing on the psychological foundations and implications of deafness, this volume provides a scholarly overview of research concerning deaf individuals, deafness, and related topics. Taken together, the chapters offer a coherent picture of the scientific issues facing deafness researchers and the relationships between biology, language, cognition, and social processes. Contributors provide forthright but balanced examinations of the goals, methodologies and interpretations of research relevant to their topics, while at the same time considering broader theoretical motivations and implications of relevant findings.
