Inclusion Workshops

W-2. Embracing disABILITIES in Inclusion Classrooms

Grade Levels: K-12
Length: 3 Hours

Inclusion is no longer a philosophy or a buzzword, but a classroom reality. Focus of this session will be to embrace students' strengths and potentials. Learn ways to foster disABILITY awareness and inclusive mindsets in students, colleagues, and families. This includes activities that promote positive attitudes toward inclusion, creating opportunities for social and academic acceptance, teacher preparation, appropriate scaffolding, content-rich differentiated lessons, peer interactions, data documentation, reflections, and collaborative home and school support systems. The ultimate goal of inclusion classroom practices is to correlate individualized student profiles with heterogeneous classroom dynamics to yield societal dividends that embrace and honor not only the principles of inclusion, but most important the abilities of all learners.

Learn how to:

Teachers, families, administrators, and all school personnel of students in Grades K-12.
