The mainstreaming of handicapped students into physical education classes is dependent upon teachers who can provide successful learning experiences. The application of behavior management concepts appears to be an instructional technique which physical educators should consider in designing quality mainstreaming experiences. Studies were reviewed that report the application of behavior management principles in various curricular areas including physical education. Additional research is needed to substantiate the importance of behavior management techniques in helping to create a favorable environment in the mainstreamed physical education class.
