Down Syndrome Short Course: Session 1
Inclusive Classrooms – 5 Things Every Teacher MUST Know
Paula Kluth & Amanda Corby
The word ‘inclusion’ is used widely, often to represent a range of ideas, models and beliefs. But what does inclusive education – real, true inclusion – actually mean? In this session we’ll be exploring the knowledge, beliefs and actions required to make inclusive education a reality for all students. We’ll also examine common perceived barriers to inclusion for students with Down syndrome and, more importantly, why they’re just not real. A special focus of this session will be creating supports for students who are not at grade level and have different learning objectives than their peers.
