Henry Ford once said, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress. Working together is success” (Brainy Quote). From here, the concept of inclusive education, including students with and without learning disabilities as peers in the same classroom, originated. The aim of this type of education is to get students with learning disabilities involved in the society. Teachers and fellow students will also provide help for students with disabilities; in this way, students with learning disabilities will be motivated to study as they feel that they are a part of a group instead of being isolated in special places. Thus, they will achieve higher grades. Moreover, they will be greatly engaged in the society as they are building bridges with their peers from several backgrounds. On the long run, teachers, parents, and the society as a whole would develop. Students with learning disabilities should be included in the “normal” classroom because it improves their academic performance, social behavior, and communication language.
Introduction This presentation on inclusive practises is intended to assist educators to meet the needs of a diverse population of children with varying cognitive abilities; developmental and learning disabilities; sensory impairments; and different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. Below are the key learning needs identified of the chosen case study Hayley, a year 11 student with Down syndrome. I have also mentioned how to cater for the needs of all students in the classroom. The difference between differentiation and reasonable adjustments is also explained. Ways to differentiate pedagogy to meet individual needs.
It has been proven that when we use inclusion in the classroom, children have better communication skills, higher academic achievement, wider social networks and fewer behavior problems. Therefore; as educators, we should come together and advocate for inclusion to make it a nationwide
Bunch (2008) views the inclusive education philosophy as socially just and more effective in both academic and social spheres. Worldwide, the educational authorities have adopted the principle of inclusion to address the social and moral obligation to educate all learners (Forbes
I believe that all children are individuals, unique in their abilities, from a wide diversity of backgrounds and cultures, and they also have the right to be treated with dignity and respect. Educators are observers and designers who have to observe children’s abilities, interests and learning styles for designing a curriculum that fulfill everyone’s needs. Observers also play an important role on noticing individual differences and offering help to children who have lower ability to improve
In Hector’s case, he was experiencing behavioral problems and as a result, it hindered his learning ability and his ability to socially interact with his peers. If Hector and his needs were not properly assessed, Hector might have never learned how to properly interact with others and inside the classroom. Thankfully with the help of the IDEA act, Hector was given full support in addressing his needs and improving his situation. Therefore, it can be said that it is important to address diversities in the classroom for no child is the same and they each require different forms of education in accordance with their skill and abilities.
Inclusive: Ensuring every child or young person has access to learning all areas of the curriculum, identifying areas that a child maybe struggling and adapting provision for this. Nothing should stop a child from learning and developing both emotionally and physically, setting a positive example and modelling good attitudes are all part of inclusive practise. Every child has the right to learn regardless of ability tasks should be set to allow for all learners to understand and to achieve the outcome in a positive way. Making observations helps to reflect on own practise to ensure that the needs of the children are being met and were adaption is needed, making sure this is done.
It not only included challenges with inclusion in an educational setting, but in everyday life and family settings. Including Samuel demonstrates the difficulties of inclusion in education. Through the story of Samuel inclusion in the classroom is not an issue for him. Samuel’s peers are inclusive
Additionally, educators at this school include learning experiences that allow students to explore events, concepts, issues, and themes from multiple perspectives. The imperative aspect of the curriculum should be relevant to the lives of diverse students and should reflect their everyday aspects of life and daily experiences. As a principal, Mr. Stone, takes every effort, in constructing small learning environments, fostering continuous relationships between adults and students, and creating advisory systems for academic
Making content accessible for all students can be a difficult task. Classrooms are filled with diverse learners from all different backgrounds with different strengths, needs, home languages and learning styles. This is particularly true in a moderate to severe special education classrooms where students have varying levels of academic, developmental, communication and social abilities. Over the course of my teaching career and my time at Brandman I have learned valuable ways of engaging and supporting all students’ in the classroom.
Thesis statement “Inclusion Helps Special Needs Students by Allowing Them to Develop Interactional Skills Because of the Exposure to a Social Environment.” Inclusion in education is an approach to educate students with special needs in regular classrooms, rejecting the need of special schools. The aim of this paper will be to demonstrate that inclusion of special needs students in regular classrooms helps them not only by developing interactional skills but also by allowing them to grow in a more desirable way in school. However, inclusion is not completely beneficial. One must consider that special needs is an umbrella of several necessities that demand different approaches.
It is important for teachers to create an environment that promotes fairness in order for students to succeed. Equality and equity are both needed to do this. Equality in a class means every student has the same opportunity to succeed. Making accommodations for students is called equity. This is needed in a class to ensure an equal opportunity to succeed is possible for every student. When a class is fair, students are more motivated to learn making success a more sustainable goal.
