How is this achieved?
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
The school is not really for you.
- Inclusive education
Includes taking kids with disabilities and educating them. Same as educational
The key difference is that it calls for specific changes in the school board. We are not
simply accommodating (doing a favor) kids, rather we’re changing the whole system
so that it is designed to be accessible to everybody. It is most consistent
multicultural education in ON. We celebrate all holidays of all cultures. We celebrate
diversity of sexual orientation. The school is going to change to accommodate that
child’s needs. All kids are eligible equally. This is very powerful which today we might
take for granted. From a human rights perspective, it is perfect. From an educational
perspective, it depends how much support really gets.
Inclusive education means: it is important that they go to the neighborhood school.
WHY? They are more likely to be comfortable with kids that they see around and
play with. The friends that they make at school are more likely to live close to them.
It requires that the proportion of students labeled for special services is relatively
uniform for all of the schools. Disability does not know what race is, what color
is. People with disability belong to all social strata. Even within the school, we
don’t want them to be excluded. It’s better to do what’s best for the kids rather
what’s educationally right.
Partial inclusion: They may be pulled out of their educational setting based on
their needs. For example, a student who has quadriplegia, the student may work
well in the classroom but not in the gym. Maximizing time with non-disabled kids
while at times restricting them when necessary.
Movie - SNAPSHOTS
- Josh began to mimic the actions of the children, such as, violent movements with hands,
- While being in a classroom with normal kids, he was able to adapt and even formulate
- Tailor assignments to josh’s needs.
- Cooperative learning.
- Example of Greg: mastered social skills. Better at cooperative learning that have a
definite beginning and end.
- Educational concerns that teachers have are abolished by the addi
