Class Placements for Twins and Multiples

The current research does not provide good accounts of the effects of classroom separation on the development of twins.  There is currently no clear evidence to support the belief that separation provides greater outcomes for individuality.  


The document below provides guidance about how to decide whether twins should be in separate or the same class.
