Special Education Inclusion. Center for School Success Promising Practices Series
Imbimbo, Josephine; Knopf, Naomi
New Visions for Public Schools
This publication focuses on special education inclusion. Inclusion is a term that expresses commitment to providing specially designed instruction and support for students with special needs in the context of a general education classroom. All students in the school are full members of the community, participating equitably in the opportunities available in a general education environment. Support services are brought to the child, rather than moving the child to the support services, and the only requirement is that the child benefit from being in a general education class rather than having to keep up with other students. Inclusion is a revolutionary concept that addresses concerns of self worth and strives to meet the needs of all students. Appended are: (1) References; (2) Resources; and (3) Guide to School Visits.
