Inclusion means different things to different people. Inclusion usually means kids with disabilities in class and learning with kids without disabilities.
Schools are making strides in inclusion and have a variety of students with disabilities. They are exploring different ways of making the schools inclusive. Educators and parents continue to talk about how to successfully educate children together.
There are articles, videos, and events that celebrate inclusive classrooms. There is also information and training about inclusive practices. Each year, Inclusive Schools Week highlights schools and teachers who are doing a great job. The event occurs in December. Organizations around the country recognize the week in different ways. Visit the Inclusive Schools Network for the latest celebration activities, downloads and products.
