Accomodating the disabled in technology education
You can then share it with your child’s teachers, email it to relevant school staff at the start of each year and bring it along to every IEP meeting.
As a matter of law, it can be difficult for schools to prove “unjustifiable hardship” even where accommodating a student with disability involves substantial costs.
Access to quality information can make all the difference.
In this Schools For All Guide you will find an overview of what families need to know in pursuing an inclusive education experience for their child – about the law and rights to education, academic and social strategies and supports, IEP goals to help support inclusion and tips on how to proceed in case of difficulties with a school.
When it comes to the word “inclusion” – you may find the people you are talking to don’t have the same level of understanding about what this means.
Put simply, inclusion is much more that just physically “being there” – it’s what happens when you make sure that someone isn’t left out – of the classroom, the learning and curriculum, the playing, the relationships and every other aspect of school life.Sometimes it is hard for parents, who probably did not grow up in inclusive learning environments themselves, to imagine how their child can be included in a regular school – this is where speaking to other families and finding out about how they are making it happen for their child is invaluable.
