Inclusive Education - EDPD5011

Year - 2018

This unit will critically examine the process, models, educational policies and strategies proposed for the inclusion of students with special needs into the regular classroom and the community. The shift in the debate from whether or not integration should take place to the acceptance of the principles of inclusion, and the consequent debates concerning strategies for the implementation and inclusion are major discussion topics. Issues such as education system reform, whole-school approaches, most effective curriculum structures and the hidden curriculum within inclusion will be raised. The strong movement towards full inclusion of people with disabilities, both in schools and the community, will be explored, together with an examination of the barriers to full inclusion, such as stigma and negative attitudes towards disability, the service delivery structures in schools and community services, the cost factor and appropriate levels of training for all staff involved.
