The video “Beyond F.A.T. City: Look Back, Look Ahead-Conversation about Special Education”is an excellent source to utilize for special education teachers, parents, and general teachers alike. Richard D. Lavoie has a direct approach on helping children with disabilities succeed. The in-depth discussion opens the eyes of teachers and parents regarding what is fair in the classroom, how to bring the concepts of fairness to the home environment, and the importance of not assuming things about individuals. Richard D. Lavoie defines fairness in the classroom as everyone gets what he or she needs (Beyond, 2005). Many children believe that fairness means that everything is equal, however, that is not the case, especially in an educational setting. Lavoie goes on to explain the importance of defining and explaining fairness to your students on the first day of school, so they understand that each individual student will get what they need, even though it may not seem fair to others. …show more content…
What stuck out to me most is when he said, “never do to a kid that which you would not do to an adult” (Beyond, 2005). It is so important for children to respect their parents and vice versa. Lavoie also explains that he dislikes the term “attention seeking behavior” because the child is blatantly telling you what he or she needs; attention. As parents, we must acknowledge this behavior and meet our child’s needs. Lavoie states that the most important thing we can do as parents is to give our kid’s roots and wings.

For that, the teachers ' role is to guarantee that the student does not feel inferior, unequal, wich would be the negative conotation of the special education placement (Raymond, 2012).

Throughout this weeks reading on Chapter 4, we focus in on the Progressive Era and the establishment of urban America. The industrial revolution was at its peak and the United States was developing rapidly. Immigration, manufacturing output, and urban development grew faster than any other time in the nation’s history.

So many federal laws and regulations have paved the way for individuals with disabilities to be able to have the equal opportunity for success. Education was not always an option for everyone, there was a time when receiving an education was a privilege. When writing about IDEA Garguilo states that “we consider this law to be one of the most important pieces, if not the most important piece, of federal legislation ever enacted on behalf of children with special needs” (page 45). This law allowed for all children with disabilities to receive a free appropriate education. IDEA changed the way for these individuals allowing for a: FAPE, LRE, IEP, procedural due process, nondiscriminatory assessment, and parental participation.
Special education is a discipline marked by a lot of controversy and which elicits a heated debate among education administrators, parents, and teachers. Full inclusion, which is the belief that disabled students should be incorporated into regular classrooms, regardless of whether they meet conventional curricular standards or not, is the major point of controversy. Full inclusion embraces the idea that disabled students should undertake regular education and only be excluded in a class when important services cannot be offered to them (Nelson, Palonsky, & McCarthy, 2010). This paper seeks to delve into the arguments surrounding full inclusion and establish their validity. It will achieve this by highlighting the arguments for and against

INTRODUCTION Inclusion in education is the act of integrating and accommodating each student regardless of their learning difficulties, disabilities, or other special needs. That is why in our world today, parents, educators, and lawmakers are pushing for inclusion, for the right of each child with special needs to learn alongside their peers, to have the same access to opportunities and academic advantages, and to be able to take part and contribute in the community. In the field of education, inclusion has become a controversial topic, because of the ethical and legal issues that surrounds it. On one hand, it promotes equality and diversity among the student population and it is meant to accommodate each and every student despite their
As children attend school, it is the teachers’ responsibility to create an atmosphere of equality among all children and so many times that is not the case. Teachers give false expectations to some
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.

Children with special educational needs should be given this option like any other typical child as they should be treated equally. All children should have access to a huge range of activities, that with guidance, it will help them to gain life and work skills that will contribute to their own independence.
