Storyboard Text

  • Yes, Inclusion is not about disability but is also about creating a society where everyone feels welcome.
  • Many schools call themselves inclusive but still maintain segregated classroom based on special education labels. 
  • Inclusion helps all students by teaching them to appreciate everyone's differences and find solutions that work for all. 
  • Referral and assessment procedures often place students in segregated environments before an attempt is made to serve them in a general education classroom.
  • Sometimes student behavior requires a different placement outside the general education classroom, but steps should be considered to all the student to re-enter the classroom. 
  • Inclusion allows students and teachers to talk about uncomfortable topics.
  • Inclusive classrooms become a positive place for everyone when multiple forms of peer support are consistent and valued.
  • Educators should view special education as a service, not a sentence.
  • Inclusion classrooms put a premium on how people treat one another. 
  • The IEP team must believe in the inclusive education model and view problems as something to work through.
  • Inclusion teaches us to think about we, rather than I. 
  • All educators should come together and promote differentiation, adaptations and UDL for successful learning and education placement.
