  • Very interesting session highlighting the fact that every single students is unique in nature and they have unique way of learning.

  • thank you for this very interesting discussion highlighting the fact that Every single students is unique in nature and they have unique way of learning.

  • This is very true even in college many colleges just want disabled students for a quota of numbers without thinking about how can we teach you. I know this personally because I have cerebral palsy.

  • UDL, just like many other teaching methods are good, sure, but it’s the behavior students that need to be kicked the ** out of the classroom. They ruin it for everyone else including the teachers. I was a kid like that, and they did just that. Guess what? My classmates did just fine without me. Not mad at all now that I work in education. Special ed needs to be taught in a special ed class, just like Spanish needs to be taught in a Spanish class. Come on, people. You can’t blend everything. Don’t know English? Okay, well take an English class, but don’t throw ESL students into a fully English speaking class. That’s what we do at my middle school. It’s horrible.

  • I too think that it’s better for a child with a disability like autism or down syndrome to go to a special needs school. But I recently read a couple of articles about inclusive education. And they made some good points… What do you guys think?

  • This idealism is not in touch with reality, Teach the students at there level in classes with student of the same level not age group level, You can not teach kinesthetic learners with academic learners for a start. And a person on a spectrum has to want to learn, You can take a horse to water up I bet you cant get the horse to drink unless it want’s too.

  • I find that she perhaps could argue her position from a side that makes the listener feel like they too, don’t fit the definition of the “norm”, because it’s too rigid.

    Also, Albert Einstein never said that.

  • Inclusiveness is just locking the sped students in the basement instead of a different building, all day was spent in classrooms with no sunlight.

  • Man when they put me in special ed classes back in the 90’s early 00’s they just segregated me in the cubicle and they said I was just “slow”. As an adult I was finally diagnosed with ADHD. I wonder if they had done it differently back then, would I be more successful? Ah well

  • The educational system failed me because I had mild learning issues but did not get the classes I needed no college prep no nothing I still struggle to this day due to the fact that traditional education excluded me from subjects I truly needed to succeed it’s impacted my life negatively and I feel that I was simply passed through the system I don’t feel I learned anything except for a small few of teachers who supported me if I had what other kids had I would have had a better outcome

  • I very very very strongly want all special education schools and classes to be made illegal everywhere in the world and the U
    S, as it is just child abuse and hate crime because there are no disabled people in the world and no child, chooses to attend a special education school or program, they are forced against their will into it out of hatred!!!

  • Hi Jan Wilson, there is no one size fit all. you may need to draw some attention once the child is crossing the OPT entering the workforce. Believe me, if you willing to share your problems, there will be someone around the corner to help you. I do keep some helpful resources for disabled maybe we can start to build a library on those? Keep it up!
