History of Inclusion Education — Infographic

Inclusion Education in the United States

“Inclusive education is a process where by the school systems, strategic plans, and policies adapt and change to include teaching strategies for a wider more diverse range of children and their families.  Inclusive education implicitly means to identify a child’s learning style and adapt the classroom and teaching strategies to ensure high quality learning outcomes for all members of the class.” (Senese Inclusive Education)
