Summary In order to achieve successful regular classroom participation for children with disabilities with supplementary aids and services, consultant teacher services are essential. This book is intended for special education teachers and other professionals providing special education services with information, guidelines and suggestions relating to the role and responsibilities of the special education consultant teacher. Every state must provide a continuum of alternative placements (e.g. regular classroom, resource room, self-contained setting), but the focus of this guide is participation in the regular classroom and/or regular curriculum "to enable children with disabilities to be educated with nondisabled children to the maximum extent appropriate." The many suggestions provided should prove useful concerning what the special education consultant teacher can and should do to enable children with disabilities to be educated with nondisabled children
