Allow students with disabilities to take a wide range of classes at the high school level. Psychology? Modern Dance? German? The catalog of possible options should be open to all.

This website is dedicated to promoting inclusive schooling and exploring positive ways of supporting students with autism and other disabilities. Most of my work involves collaborating with schools to create environments, lessons, and experiences that are inclusive, respectful, and accessible for all learners.

Idea #21: Inclusive community-based instruction

Posted on April 21, 2013 in Autism

Another idea from You’re Going to Love This Kid!

If your students really need community-based instruction, they need not miss out on their inclusive education in order to get it. Look for regular opportunities for all students to go into the community to engage in real-world mathematics (e.g., calculating percentages at a grocery store), serve others, job shadow, explore community resources, and engage in project-based instruction.

Some students can walk to some of these experiences. In other cases, small heterogeneous groups of students may need to take turns learning away from the classroom.
