Supports for Children with Disabilities in Regular Education Classrooms: An Account of Different Perspectives in Flanders
Mortier, Kathleen; Van Hove, Geert; De Schauwer, Elisabeth
International Journal of Inclusive Education, v14 n6 p543-561 Sep 2010
This paper presents the experiences and interpretations of children, parents, teachers and support persons concerning the implementation of supports in regular school environments in Flanders, Belgium. The data were gathered through observations, interviews and focus group meetings. Those multiple perspectives provide insights into the complexity of implementing supports in a regular education context. The conclusions offer some possibilities for debate and alternative ways of thinking about supports that facilitate inclusive school communities by tapping into resources such as the children, the environment, creativity and courage to leave the beaten path. (Contains 4 tables and 2 notes.)
