Learning Disabilities

The Benefits of Inclusive Education

classroomHere are key findings about the benefits of inclusion for children and families:

  • Families’ visions of a typical life for their children can come true.
  • All parents want their children to be accepted by their peers, have friends and lead “regular” lives. Inclusive settings can make this vision a reality for many children with disabilities.

  • Children develop a positive understanding of themselves and others.
  • When children attend classes that reflect the similarities and differences of people in the real world, they learn to appreciate diversity. Respect and understanding grow when children of differing abilities and cultures play and learn together.

  • Friendships develop.
  • Schools are important places for children to develop friendships and learn social skills. Children with and without disabilities learn with and from each other in inclusive classes.

  • Children learn important academic skills.
  • In inclusive classrooms, children with and without disabilities are expected to learn to read, write and do math. With higher expectations and good instruction children with disabilities learn academic skills.

  • All children learn by being together.
  • Because the philosophy of inclusive education is aimed at helping all children learn, everyone in the class benefits. Children learn at their own pace and style within a nurturing learning environment.

      it’s really necessary to have inclusive education in everywhere so that the children having disabilities will live their life normally and happily.

      i appreciate the idea of inclusive education.

    • sam

      the idea is good only if implimented

    • Lee Smith

      i think this is a great concept. in my opinion we forget about the students in the middle while we focus on the children at the extreme ends of the spectrum. we have provisions that ensure the gifted students excel, students low performance get additional instruction, and students with disabilities receive needed supplements. however, the solid c students arent challenged or supported to become a or b students. if more schools used an inclusive approach it would insure that ALL students were able to maximize their learning potential.

    • Grace Mulipola

      this is one of the great project for people who needs help with their education because it showcases our support for them

    • Alaneee

      It’s really beneficial especially for those kind of students who really need to be educated because they still want to learn. Meanwhile, it’s also effective that they implement this kind of education. I hope that it’s affordable for anyone.

      ITs the worst idea ever. These special ed kids need their own classrooms and teaching curriculum. How are they going to compete with others twice their wit. It will only slow the class down and make the sped children doubt their capabilities as they will not learn as fast as the others.

      • Donna Coppock

        I disagree. With the right teacher the Special Education students are provided with support and appropriate academic materials. This practice benefits all students. Do you really think that by isolating them that is going to make them feel any better about themselves?

    • abdul kader

      it has become a common practice to put the so called disabled

      in a very high position or in a very low position…….all that they need is putting them equal…………….
