Kenneth Kavale and Steven Forness discuss research and policy issues in educational inclusion of students with learning and behavioral disabilities. Margaret Weiss and Frederick Brigham contribute a chapter on the research support for co-teaching as an educational intervention for promoting academic achievement and educational inclusion. Finally, Marge Mastropieri, Vicky Spencer, Thomas Scruggs, and Elizabeth Talbott provide a meta-analysis of recent research on peer tutoring interventions involving students with learning and behavioral disabilities.
