Limited Capacity filling up

Definitions for “inclusive education” are confounded by notions that place (location of instruction) determines when a student is included. In this session, the presenter will share a framework for an inclusive school, ranging from school-wide practices to classroom applications, to individual student planning where all students have access to all physical environments within a school building. The meaning of “inclusion” for individual learners is then defined in terms of the extent to which all learners are valued members, participate in all school activities equitably, and have access to and make progress in academic and functional skills. National placement data over 20 years will show the extent to which students physically access general education settings in each State. Participants will review and provide input into a classroom rating of membership and participation, based on video observations of learners engaged in instruction within general education classes.
