Implementing RtI and IDEA in the classroom.

Least Restrictive Environment


TEAM 4: Your job is to look at least restrictive placement models and determine the pros and cons of each model.

When preparing for this task one should ask:

  • What do the laws say about the rights of students in reference to their placement?

  • How is least restrictive environment (LRE) determined?

  • Compare and contrast mainstreaming and inclusion. How are they alike? How are they different?

  • Evaluate the term "continuum of alternative placements".

  •  What are the arguments for and against full inclusion?
