Transcript of Full Inclusion

Full Inclusion What is Full Inclusion? All students, regardless of any handicapping condition, will be in a regular classroom/program full time Different from mainstreaming because the students are with “regular” students full time as opposed to only taking select classes with them Doesn’t assume that students need to “earn” a place in a regular class Often requires special aides, materials, or technology Advocates feel that special education classrooms constitute a form of segregation Want classrooms to be inherently equal "Good" teachers are those who can meet the needs of all the students, regardless of what those needs may be The History of Full Inclusion five critical principles of special education 1.Zero Reject- asserts that no child with disabilities may be denied a free, appropriate public education. 2.
