Inclusive education; Children with disabilities--Education;
The primary focus of this article is to address when regular education teachers should make adaptations for students in the general education setting and to determine the kinds of adaptations that general education teachers can make for their students. This article also links curricular and instructional adaptations to the research on effective schools. Steps for setting up an inclusive science classroom are presented. Various adaptations in the science classroom are discussed. The findings of this research report indicate that there are a variety of instances where it is appropriate for teachers to make adaptations for students in the general education setting. There are processes that teachers can implement to help determine when these adaptations should be made, as well as a menu of adaptation types from which teachers can choose.
