2 shorts from the ASSIST series together on 1 reel, "Overview of ASSIST" and "The changing field of special education." Examines the important role of the associate instructor (AI) in a classroom situation with emphasis on AI skill development in the mainstreaming of mildly handicapped individuals. Suggests that the best way to assist these individuals is not through segregated training but rather through the mainstreaming approach, where the person is afforded a more normal classroom experience. Discusses two case histories and outlines a plan for remediation.
