The purpose of this study is to explore the opinions of general education teachers with regard to the instructional adaptations that need to be made for inclusion and to evaluate them against several variables. The study group consists of 126 general education teachers. The opinions of the teachers with regard to the adaptations in their classrooms have been evaluated by the Scale of Instructional Adaptations for Inclusion (SIMI). The SIMI consists of 2 subscales (physical-educational adaptations) and 39 items. The study revealed that teachers consider a majority of the items of the SIMI significant and marked them as "necessary." Also a review of the distribution teachers' responses with emphasis on the educational and physical adaptations reveal that the teachers have marked the physical adaptations more than the educational ones as the instructional adaptations that need to be implemented for inclusion.
