Educational Inclusion



Inclusion in education means more than a child with disabilities just being physically present in a general education classroom; it means they have access to the same curriculum as their peers, with appropriate accommodations and supports, and they have opportunities for meaningful participation and socialization. All of these things can be vital for a student's growth and progress. The following resources help parents understand the benefits of inclusion and advocate for a more inclusive school environment through IEP goals and other advocacy tools.
