Rolling Hills Elementary Project Succeed

The research examined an intervention program and the implementation of reverse mainstreaming. Project Succeed was implemented at one elementary school site to meet the needs of all learners. General education first grade students were identified for intervention services and placed in the program according to need and ability. Part of the intervention program was reverse mainstreaming into the special education classroom requiring collaboration among general and special educators. First grade students went into the special day class for a portion of their day to receive either academic instruction or to act as peer models for the moderate to severe special education students. This study looks at how one school site implemented a model to meet the needs of all children.
