The potential benefits of co-teaching for students with disabilities are numerous, but more research is needed to ascertain the effectiveness of and preferences toward the current models. The purpose of this study was to (1) investigate student and teacher perceptions regarding the five co-teaching models (i.e., One Teach/One Assist, Station Teaching, Parallel Teaching, Alternative Teaching, and Team Teaching) as outlined, and (2) compare teacher and student perceptions to determine the impact on learning and teaching behaviors (i.e., classroom management, teaching model, confidence, engagement, learning, motivation, behavior, differentiated instruction, teacher authority, and work requirements).The results indicated that students and teachers perceive differences among the five co-teaching models and applies statistical data to previous findings that the one teach/one assist co-teaching model is ineffective.
