Perspectives on Effective Education: A Guide to Including All Children.
Udvari-Solner, Alice; Bailey, Brent R.
The goal of this booklet is to help teachers re-examine education for students with disabilities. It is intended to help clarify issues related to developing adaptive processes to include students with disabilities in general education classrooms. It begins by explaining the difference between mainstreaming, integration, and inclusion, how a general education teacher can be successful in including all children, and the role of a special education teacher in inclusive classrooms. Four basic principles are then outlined for including all children: (1) share responsibilities as a team; (2) meet on a regular basis; (3) develop priorities and plans; and (4) consider all ways of adapting activities to include children with disabilities. Appendices include a list of 28 resources on inclusive programming; information on goals, roles, and processes for helping individuals to work as a team; a meeting effectiveness checklist; strategies for including all students; and strategies for adapting curriculum.
