With the proclamation of human rights and impact of the philosophy of humanism, there has been a worldwide call for providing humane treatment to the disabled and putting an end to their isolation. Written in the same context, the book developed as per the issued directives of NCTE equips its readers with the knowledge, understanding, skills, interests and attitude needed for working in the inclusive schools. It acquaints them with all the essentials related to the nature of the different types of disabilities or impairments, diversities and exceptionalities of the children belonging to an inclusive school, the need and means of introducing needed adaptations in the environmental conditions, curriculum, teaching-learning strategies, teaching-learning aids and equipment, methods of assessing the progress of the diverse children, and likewise so many other things and requirements for fulfilling their responsibilities towards the diverse children in the inclusive set-up of the school. It is primarily designed for the student teachers of secondary education and elementary education (B.Ed., B. El. Ed., D. Ed.) of the teacher training institutes. Key Features Full coverage of the current syllabi prescribed for B. Ed., B. El. Ed. and D. Ed. Comprehensive description of the various aspects of inclusive education and CWSN such as historical perspectives to disability and inclusive education needed pedagogical and assessment approaches for CWSN, educational provisions for the disabled at national and international levels, and so forth Inclusion of quite new topics such as learning styles in the context of different types of disabilities and children with special needs, forms of exclusions on various grounds including disabilities in Indian education, approaches and models of inclusion, individual education programme, assistive and adaptive technologies, and so on User-friendly language as well as mode of discussion
When their children were young, several parents interviewed for this book were told, you can't expect much from your child. As they got older, the kids themselves often heard the same thing: that as children with disabilities, academic success would be elusive, if not impossible, for them. How Did You Get Here? clearly refutes these common, destructive assumptions. It chronicles the educational experiences-from early childhood through college-of sixteen students with disabilities and their paths to personal and academic success at Harvard University. Th e book explores common themes in their lives-including educational strategies, technologies, and undaunted intellectual ambitions-as well as the crucial roles played by parents, teachers, and other professionals. Above all, it provides a clear and candid account-in the voices of the students themselves-of what it takes to grapple eff ectively with the many challenges facing young people with disabilities. A compelling and practical book, How Did You Get Here? offers clear accounts not only of the challenges and biases facing young disabled students, but also of the opportunities they found, and created, on the way to academic and personal success.
In this groundbreaking volume, scholars examine the achievement/opportunity gaps from both historical and contemporary perspectives, as well as the overrepresentation of minority students in special education and the school-to-prison pipeline. Chapters also address school reform and the impact on students based on race, class, and dis/ability and the capacity of law and policy to include (and exclude).
International perspectives about literacy and deaf students is an uncharted intellectual landscape. Much of the literacy research in deaf education is conducted in English-speaking countries--primarily the United States--but 90% of deaf children live outside the U.S. and learn various signed and spoken languages, as well as diverse writing systems. Many of these children face significant educational challenges. In order to improve the literacy outcomes of deaf students around the world, it is imperative to study how children are using their local signed and spoken languages along with Deaf culture to learn to read and write. This volume fills a void in the field by providing a global view of recent theoretical and applied research on literacy education for deaf learners. Literacy and Deaf Education: Toward a Global Understanding is organized by region and country, with the first part discussing writing systems that use alphabetic scripts, and the second part focusing on countries that use non-alphabetic scripts. Some examples of the wide spectrum of topics covered include communication methodologies, curriculum, bilingual education, reading interventions, script diversity, and sociocultural development, including Deaf cultural developments. The contributors provide the results from literacy projects in fifteen countries and regions. This volume aims to widen the knowledge base, familiarize others in the field with these initiatives, and improve global understandings and outcomes of literacy teaching and learning in deaf education from birth to high school. Signed chapter summaries will be available on the Gallaudet University Press YouTube channel upon publication.
The author offers eight guiding principles that can be used to advance an inclusive pedagogy. These principles permit teachers to both acknowledge and draw from the conditions within which they work, even as they uphold their commitments to equitable schooling for students from historically marginalized groups, particularly students with disabilities.
The Blind Advantage provides insight into the challenges, possibilities, and practicalities of including students with disabilities--and into the mind and heart of an inspired and determined leader. You should get out of education. That was the advice first-year teacher Bill Henderson received when he discovered he was gradually losing his vision. Instead, Henderson persevered and became principal of the Patrick O'Hearn Elementary School in Boston, an ethnically and economically diverse school where about a third of the students have mild, moderate, or significant disabilities. In The Blind Advantage, Henderson describes how the journey into blindness helped him develop key qualities--determination, vision, sensitivity, organization, collaboration, and humor--that made him a more effective principal. At the same time, he shows how the inclusionary policies and practices at the O'Hearn School (now renamed the William W. Henderson Inclusion Elementary School) elicited and developed these qualities in others. An audio version of this book is available for purchase. This audio version was created in collaboration with the Perkins Braille & Talking Book Library.

The practice of universal design-of making a product or environment accessible to all individuals-has been around for a long time. But, until now, that practice has never been explored in depth in the field of physical education. This groundbreaking text provides a much-needed link between universal design and physical education, extending boundaries as it offers physical educators a systematic guide to create, administer, manage, assess, and apply universal design for learning (UDL). Universal Design for Learning in Physical Education is for all physical educators-those who are or are preparing to become general PE teachers as well as those who are in the field of adapted physical education. This resource offers the following: Ready-to-use curricular units for grades K-12, with 31 universally designed lessons that demonstrate how teachers can apply UDL in specific content areas (teachers can also use those examples to build their own units and lessons) Rubrics for the 28 items on the Lieberman-Brian Inclusion Rating Scale for Physical Education (LIRSPE) to help teachers follow best practices in inclusion Tables, timelines, and paraeducator training checklists to ensure that UDL is effectively delivered from the beginning of the school year In her earlier text, Strategies for Inclusion, Third Edition, coauthor Lauren Lieberman included a valuable chapter about UDL that focused on detailed, practical steps for making classes inclusive. Universal Design for Learning in Physical Education approaches inclusion from the macro level, providing a comprehensive conceptual model of UDL and how to incorporate it into curriculum planning and teaching methods for K-12 physical education. Outcomes for Universal Design for Learning in Physical Education are aligned with SHAPE America's physical education standards and grade-level outcomes. Given that 94 percent of students with disabilities are taught in physical education settings, this text offers highly valuable guidance to general physical educators in providing equal access to, and engagement in, high-quality physical education for all students. Part I of Universal Design for Learning in Physical Education defines universal design and explains how it relates to physical education. It identifies barriers that teachers may face in adapting UDL to their programs and how to overcome these barriers. It also addresses critical assessment issues and guides teachers in supporting students with severe or multiple disabilities. Part I also covers advocacy issues such as how to teach students to speak up for their own needs and choices. Readers will gain insight into where their programs excel and where barriers might still exist when they employ the Lieberman-Brian Inclusion Rating Scale, a self-assessment tool that helps measure physical, programmatical, and social inclusion. Finally, part I reinforces several UDL principles by sharing many examples of how physical educators have applied UDL in their programs. Part II offers a trove of universally designed units and lesson plans for use across grades K-12, with separate chapters on lessons for elementary, sports, fitness, recreation, and aquatics. Universal Design for Learning in Physical Education is the first text to delve deeply into the concept of universal design in physical education. As such, it is a valuable resource for all PE teachers-both those leading general classes and adapted classes-to learn how to successfully implement universally designed units and lesson plans that enrich all their students' lives. The accompanying web resource provides 40 forms, tables, checklists, and a sample lesson plan from the book, as well as a list of websites, books, and laws. These resources are provided as reproducible PDFs for practical use.
This book presents an ethnographic case study of the personal motivations, advocacy, and activation of social capital needed to create and sustain the Immortelle Children's Centre, a private school that has served children with disabilities in Trinidad/Tobago for four decades. Based on narratives by parents from the 1980's, current parents, teachers, community advocates, and the author, who was the founder of Immortelle in 1978, the study views the school within the context of a nation standing in a liminal space between developed and developing societies. It argues that the attainment of equity for children with disabilities will require an agenda that includes a legal mandate for education of all children, increased public funding for education, health and therapeutic services, and an on-going public awareness campaign. Relating this study to the global debate on inclusion, the author shows how the implementation of this agenda would have to be adapted to the social, cultural, and economic realities of the society.
