Difficulties

There are a few problems that could occur with an inclusion classroom one being that there are not enough help to go around if there's only one teacher in the class, especially if there are special education students involved.



"What a full inclusionist don't see is that children with disabilities are individuals with differing needs; some benefit with inclusion and others do not. Full inclusionist don't see that medically fragile children and children with severe behavioral disorders are more likely to be harmed than helped when they are placed in regular classrooms. . ." (education world, 2011)

Ways to make your classroom inclusive

1. Large table: allows students to work into group while also providing a social setting.
2. Technology: such as i pads and tablets gives the students with disabilities the chance to communicate with others around them.
3. Job charts: this gave the students a chance to practice team work to complete a task.

What I've learned in the classroom:

In this special education class I have learned that inclusion is an important key to learning whether you have a disability or learning as a traditional student. Inclusion can help open students eyes and mind to different ideas and cultural backgrounds. This could also decrease the rates of judging and bullying which seem to be more common now than before. Often time students feel left out because of their learning weakness and choose to not participant or become social with their peers. Technology as well as other little modifications can make a world of a difference. A student with reading problem can use an I PAD to have the book or article read to them, that along could give that child an option to now participant in , in class discussions.
