Although state education agencies, teacher preparation institutions, and public schools often combine high incidence disabilities into one category and one placement, the students grouped under this label often have diverse educational needs. This study compares two samples of secondary special education teachers working at the same schools to examine programming across disability category. One sample consists of teachers of students with learning disabilities (LD) and the other, teachers of students with mild mental impairments (MMI). The paper compares the similarities and differences.
