Purpose – To share a model of preparing special educators to teach reading to students with mild-to-moderate disabilities.

Design/methodology/approach – The authors describe a specific model for preparing special educators to teach reading.

Findings – Data are provided regarding the effectiveness of this model of special education teacher preparation based on performance of students with disabilities who participated in the program.

Research limitations/implications – This research was done as a program evaluation and may have validity and generalizability limitations.

Practical implications – Other institutions of higher education may gain insight on how a similar preservice teacher preparation program could be developed and implemented at their institution.

Originality/value – The school/university partnership described is extremely unique and effective in preparing future special educators to teach reading to students with disabilities.

Abstract

Misidentification has two meanings. First, it refers to the identification of a student with a disability when in fact he or she does not have a disability. This is also referred to as a false positive. Misidentification can also mean a student has been identified with the wrong disability (e.g., specific learning disability (SLD) instead of mental retardation (MR)). Disproportionality includes both overrepresentation and underrepresentation. Overrepresentation is identifying more students with disabilities than would be expected based on proportions within a defined population. Conversely, underrepresentation refers to identifying fewer students with disabilities than their prevalence in a population.
