All Means All: A Unified Approach
Posny, Alexa
State Education Standard, v13 n1 p4-9 Aug 2013
In this article, former U.S. Assistant Secretary for Special Education examines how educators can increase access to equal opportunities for all students to succeed. Most children with disabilities have the capacity to achieve at or exceed the same levels as their peers without disabilities. This means students can be and are successful when included in general education settings, now known as "inclusion." Inclusion has had an important impact on the lives of all students. A reflection on the history of special education, the research about it, and current examples of projects that have contributed to creating an inclusive environment for students provides a picture of the inclusion of all students, not just in the classroom but also in extracurricular activities, which is presented in this article. One such example is Special Olympics Unified Sports®, described later in this article.
