Lecture 2 How is this achieved? - Mainstreaming  Accommodating people with disabilities  Educationally, it might be the best thing for them.  Human rights approach vs. Clinical/Educational approach - The Least Restrictive Environment (LRE)  Considerations for individualized considerations - Educational integration  Bringing two different together (white and black) does not mean that they will work together.  The school is not really for you. - Inclusive education  Includes taking kids with disabilities and educating them.
