Inclusion in the Classroom

Toby J. Karten, director of Tamka Educational Products, LLC, has spent her professional career creating innovative techniques to introduce Inclusion Strategies to the educational classroom. Her Inclusion Workshops inform and inspire scores of participants and her published books and resources compliment her teachings, offering valuable information on how to promote inclusion strategies in the classroom.

Inclusion in Education is about peers with and without disabilities learning together side-by-side in a grade-level classroom to achieve academic, social, communication, and functional skills.  It occurs when communities of learners of the same age are educated together within natural school settings.

Inclusion in Education is not a policy, place, or service, but a way for students with disabilities to have access to the general education curriculum with the appropriate planning, preparation, and participation. Inclusion education values the strengths of all learners to be accepted in classes, schools, communities, and as adults in inclusive societies.
