What matters most in inclusive education: A practical guide for moving forward

Academic Article


  • Structuring learning environments to promote the inclusion of learners with disabilities is an important responsibility that educators in general and special education share. The physical placement of students with disabilities in general education classes is often overemphasized, while other aspects of developing inclusive environments are neglected. This article describes defining principles of inclusive education and provides important questions to ask in determining whether inclusive environments demonstrate these principles. This article also includes practical strategies for assisting educators in creating educational environments that manifest the defining principles of inclusion.
