This article examines the effects of active participation in service-learning on adolescents with disabilities. Through a survey of special education teachers, effects on students' socialization, behavior, attitudes, attendance, academic skills, functional skills, and relationships with non-disabled peers are explored. Promising results are found for adolescents with mild disabilities in attendance and academic skills, and for adolescents with moderate to profound disabilities in socialization and relationships with non-disabled peers. Implications for school inclusion of students with disabilities are addressed and recommendations for areas of future study are made.
