Research Method A qualitative case study approach (Bogdan & Biklen, 1994) was used in this study. According to Patton (1996), case studies are most useful where the researcher(s) seeks to understand a particular group (e.g. students with disabilities), a particular issue, or unique situation in great depth (e.g., social inclusion in educational settings). The education settings were not manipulated to meet the theoretical framework for this study. Participants Participants were 40 fourth grade students from two separate educational systems. A suburban public school (Schooling System A) in Delaware, United States consisted of a 9-year-old girl with high-functioning Autism, a 9-year-old boy with a severe hearing impairment, and their 18 classmates. A progressive non-inclusive schooling system (Schooling System B) in Delaware, United States consisted of a 9-year-old boy with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), a nine-year-old girl with juvenile scoliosis, and their 18 classmates.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
