If you are concerned that a student does not understand your directions, ask him/her to repeat them back to you or to a peer.

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.

Flashback Friday: Use inclusion as a teaching tool

Posted on February 28, 2014 in Inclusion

This clip is from the bonus footage of You’re Going to Love This Kid DVD and Professional Development Package. The footage includes a series of 10 questions about inclusion answered by administrators, teachers, and parents.

This is a question about “inclusion for all” and it is being answered by John Price, the former principal of John J. Audubon School in Chicago. John is talking about how inclusive schools can provide opportunities for teachers to educate learners about their individual differences. This, Price maintains, makes all students savvier about their abilities, gifts, and their needs. This won’t happen simply by educating students with and without disabilities together, however. As Price points out, teachers have to be explicit in their support of inclusion and their conversations about it.
