1. What is inclusion?
Inclusion is a belief system that all students are general education students attending their neighborhood school with their chronologically age-appropriate peers. The general education curriculum and classroom is the starting point for planning for all students and is based on the premise that necessary supports and services for students with disabilities can be provided in the general education classroom. Inclusion is one of many placement options for students with Individual Education Plans (IEPs). Special education is viewed as a support service to general education and not as a place where students go to receive remediation. Effective inclusive education requires a high level of collaboration among general education and special education staff and their services are viewed as seamless.
