Education Equity - Inclusive education

Rating: 0/5

Course description

Inclusive education generally means when all students are placed together in one classroom. Imagine when all students, regardless of any challenges they may have, are placed in age-appropriate general education classes to receive high-quality instruction, interventions, and supports that enable them to meet success in the core curriculum.
The main premise of inclusive education is that students with disabilities are as fundamentally competent as students without disabilities. Consequently, all students can be full participants in their classrooms and in the local school community as well. However, a great part of inclusive education is that the environment is not restrictive, but highly natural which enables the students to express themselves.
Successful and effective inclusive education happens through accepting, understanding, and attending to student differences and diversity, which can include all the aspects of multiple intelligence - physical, cognitive, academic, social, and emotional.
The main principle of inclusive education is to make all students feel welcomed, appropriately challenged, and supported in their efforts. It’s also critically important the adults are supported, too. This includes the regular education teacher and the special education teacher as well as all other staff who are helpful. Also, we shouldn’t forget about parents.
