Co-editors, Associate Editors, and Cohort Review Team members for TEACHING Exceptional Children were asked to nominate qualified individuals to identify seminal articles in the area of educating persons with severe disabilities. In the first phase of the study nominees recommended the top 13 classic contributions in the area of severe disabilities. A self-identified panel of 172 persons in the area of severe disabilities rank ordered these 13 classic works in the second phase of the study. Results are discussed in terms of other studies that examined seminal contributions in the broader areas of special education.
