Education 6425 Manual of Inclusive Practices What is inclusion?

This is a term used to describe practices to provide the least restrictive environment (LRE) to children with a disability in the public school system. For this to be done, teachers, special education teachers, administrators, parents and community members must work together to create a school community where all students are valued as equal members of that community. This means engaging students in a wide range of learning opportunities and activities. It means implementing goals and objectives that are aligned with state standards and are using appropriate supplementary aids and services when necessary.

In this manual you will learn about inclusion in the high school math classroom. It will describe characteristics of the disabilities and show how accommodations can be made to help these students. You will see how the teachers and special education teachers can collaborate to design the most appropriate instructional strategies or adaptations for students with disabilities.
