Index for Inclusion: Developing Learning and Participation in Schools.
Booth, Tony; Ainscow, Mel; Black-Hawkins, Kristine; Vaughan, Mark; Shaw, Linda
The Index is a compilation of materials to support schools in the process of inclusive school development and is organized around the three dimensions of inclusive schools: cultures, policies, and practices. Part 1 provides an introduction to the manual, discusses the Index process as an approach to inclusion of special needs students, and specifies what schools can hope to achieve by using the Index process. Part 2 explains the five phases of the Index process, which are: (1) starting the Index process; (2) finding out about the school; (3) producing an inclusive school development plan; (4) implementing the plan; and (5) reviewing the Index process. Part 3 describes the hierarchical Index system, which involves the three dimensions of inclusive schools, develops sections under each dimension, and provides indicators/questions to determine whether section goals are being achieved. Part 4 provides additional information including several questionnaires, a description of the Disability Equality in Education training for inclusion program, and suggestions for further reading.
