Overview of Findings from Wave 1 of the Special Education Elementary Longitudinal Study (SEELS)
The findings from this report address five broad research questions:
- What are the characteristics of elementary and middle school students with disabilities in terms of individual and household demographics and their disabilities and functioning?
- What are the experiences of students with disabilities in their nonschool hours, in terms of after-school care, interactions with friends, and participation in extracurricular activities?
- What are the characteristics of their school programs and language arts classroom experiences, and how do they differ between students whose instruction is in a general education class and those whose instruction is in a special education class?
- How do students with disabilities fare in the domains of school engagement, academic performance, social adjustment, and independence, and what factors relate to more positive achievements in these domains?
- How do these factors differ for students with different disabilities and demographic characteristics?
