Examination of the perceptions of mainstream and special education teachers and parents regarding inclusive practices in Malaysia. Data was gathered from an elementary school in the Kuala Lumpur school district that included students with special needs in their mainstream classrooms. It was revealed that discrete role boundaries were maintained by the teachers and that parents had a positive perception of mutual social benefits and treatment, as well as acceptance of students with special needs.
