      The purpose of this quantitative study was to examine the perception of special education teachers about co-teaching in two areas that are teachers practice and effectiveness of co-teaching for students with learning disabilities at Saudi Arabian middle and high schools. The participants were 43 special education teachers who have experience in co-teaching class. The data was collected by online survey. The one result of this study concluded co-teachers at middle and high schools in the Riyadh region of Saudi Arabia did not implement the co-teaching approach as best practices of co-teaching are documented in the literature. One strong finding was that co-teachers did not share the planning and instruction responsibilities. Another finding showed that teachers perceived there were positive effects on academic performance and behavior for students with learning disabilities in a co-taught classroom. [from abstract]
