Inclusion Basics

For several years, there is still confusion and widely varying definitions of the “inclusion.” The lack of a common understanding of this important practice actually impedes further progress for students, their families, and the educators who teach them.

Simply stated, inclusive education means that all students are full and accepted members of their school community, in which their educational setting is the same as their non-disabled peers, whenever appropriate.

Improving Education: The Promise of Inclusive Education

Classroom Tools

Teachers and school administrators need concrete examples of working techniques and practices to make inclusion work for their students. This section provides a list of suggested techniques that have been widely used by our partners to promote inclusion.

Collaboration and Family Involvement

Inclusion requires a multi stakeholder approach to make it happen. Everybody in the community plays a significant role to ensure that no one is left behind. Thus, members of the community as well as family members must also be educated on the concepts and practices on inclusion.
