A primary goal of the Dawn Project is to fully involve families in coordinating all the services and supports a child and family is receiving, while ensuring that service provision occurs in the community, as opposed to more restrictive settings (see Stroul & Friedman, 1986). The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between the (a) level of involvement of schools from which children are participating in the Dawn Project and (b) restrictiveness of educational placement over time for student participants.
