Study Finds Inclusive Class Increases Language

A one year study revealed that preschoolers with disabilities that attended mainstream classes with skilled peers were using language on par with their classmates without disabilities.  Conversely, special needs students that were in class with students with weak language skills remained behind.

The research studied 670 Ohio preschoolers using standardized assessments .  Most of the students had a disability like autism, down’s syndrome or a language impairment.
