Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Children with disabilities--Education (Primary); Mainstreaming in education; Inclusive education;
As a special education teacher, I have always had a personal desire for inclusion to happen, and believed it could have benefits for all children of identified disabilities. After a recent transfer to a new school, the administration informed me I'd be teaching kindergarten with full inclusion for my special needs students. I was very excited about the prospect, but I was not armed with any solid information on how to approach a full inclusion model. As the school year progressed, my team and I forged ahead and I began researching what literature had to provide on the components needed to implement a successful inclusion program.
My goal in writing this paper is to make sense of what has been written which has a basis in research, and be able to formulate the components needed to support a successful inclusion program for the elementary setting.
