Inclusion
Becoming more and more likely in our school
community.
Important for all teachers to teach both general
education students and special education students.

Inclusion continued
How to prepare for an inclusion classroom
• Address attitudes and values - involved persons identify
what areas they are comfortable with, don't put values
on these; just identify them.
• Information - Read books, watch videos, talk to teachers
of inclusive classrooms, do simulation activities for an
inclusive classroom, visit inclusive schools to get
information
• Application - Take the risk with a support system to
accommodate children with greater needs this takes a
whole attitude of acceptance, tolerance, and respect
