Making Disabled Children Feel Important Even though there is a good chance, disabled children should be separated from the non disabled children to keep everyone on the same track.Most feel as if disabled kids need all the help and love that non disabled kids need. Disabled kids do not have a fair shot in the school system because they are not given the extra time that they need,and most disabled children are not treated fairly by anyone around them just because they are different. The first problem/issue to discuss is isolating disabled children into a separate school room for most of their school experience. They are not truly getting to live out their days in school because they are being put away from the non disabled children because of “distractions” or potentially slowing the teaching process down. It is as if the children that need extra help are a burden to teachers that are not used to them. They are not truly

I believe that interaction between disabled and non disabled is something that would help their learning and social skills. Many strongly disagree with excluding these disabled children from many activities that “normal” kids participate in.As this problem becomes more known, hopefully the unfair way disabled kids are treated can be stopped.

    This book is extremely relevant to my major, and it opened my eyes to how some students with disabilities are treated. This book was written in 2007, and I believe as a whole, future educators are being taught more about inclusiveness, and hopefully there aren’t many teachers that treat their students like Jonathan or Brent or Kent or Miles this way as a result of this. The school system does seem to struggle with disabilities though as a whole, and that is evident by the stories the kids of these parents…

    Recently I did my observation at Chime Institute 's Schwarzenegger Community School in a first-grade class that consisted of about twenty students both those of who have disabilities and do not. These students are typically six years old and at the time there was one teacher and one assistant who led the class. In the classroom, there was also one paraprofessional for the student with special needs. The mother of the child was also there guiding her daughter and helping with any questions the paraprofessional had regarding her daughter 's needs. For the majority of my observation, I was in a class setting…

    Throughout my research on the school to prison pipeline, I was able to identify where the main issues began and how it effects children as they grow up. There are certain policies and procedures that can be done to eliminate these issues that continue in the school systems. By setting up different recourses, this can eliminate the disparities among the students, and eliminate the harsh punishments that are set for these young adolescents. Within many schools, the use of harsh disciplinaries are set in place to control the minor infractions that the young adolescents create, but are these disciplinaries too harsh?…

    Part 2: Special Education Law and Policies “As someone charged with ensuring equality in the school environment, you have heard the term inclusion-the principle that students with special needs, skill sets, and abilities should be integrated in publicly supported activities to the same extent as their nondisabled peers.” (Taylor, 2010, p. 8) To make sure that special education students are included in public education, school leaders must make sure that these students are a part of the least restrictive environment possible. There are many different stipulations that need to be fulfilled for a school to be in compliance with special education laws, but we will focus on five key ideas that keep special education students in their least…

    Inclusion is the term used to describe an education system where children with and without disabilities are joined together into the same classroom to create equal opportunities for all students. Parents of mentally challenged children argue that an inclusive education allows their child to access skills to develop normally in society, and receive the basic social skills they need to function in a competitive business world. Those in favor of inclusion also suggest that those with special needs teach others around them about the importance of tolerance. Contrastingly, those against a joined classroom point out that inclusion creates an academic gap, and all the students have to work at the rate of the slowest learner. Inclusion can put a strain on teachers, as well as the students in the…

    Throughout many years of history, those with disabilities were not always treated fairly or given equal opportunity. Activists around the world have worked together to achieve goals such as increased access to all types of transportation and a safer day to day environment. Equal opportunities in employment and education have been a big part of their efforts too. For many years, children with disabilities were many times segregated and not given an equal opportunity for a chance to learn and succeed in school. A disability should not limit a person’s choice to improve themselves and their intellectual capabilities.…

    I found a very interesting article in the Capella library. The article is called “Nature vs. Nurture in Special Education”. The article states that “schools are organized as if nature has already won the contest (Marks, S. U. (2009)). This is so significant with school systems today, because it is the truth. A child who has a disability is almost always put into a special education class.…

    A teacher’s goal is to maximize his or her student’s potential. Traditionally, the biggest challenge for students with disabilities was to meet their needs in the areas of social, behavioral, cognitive, perceptive and motor skills (Adebisi et al. 14). A learning disability is defined by the Schwab Foundation as a person who is diagnosed by a professional with a difficulty as a result of a CNS dysfunction in the areas or reading, writing, math, science, reasoning speaking, or listening. In order to meet the diverse needs of these students, they were traditionally removed from the mainstream classroom and placed in a separate classroom to learn. Although this was the best way to meet the students’ academic needs, their social needs were grossly…

    Special education is in every school system to help students with disabilities have success in life. According to Artiles and colleagues research, children back in the 1800s were excluded from educational opportunities (Artiles, Harris-Murri, and Rostenberg, 2006, p. 260). Children with disabilities were often segregated into either a separate classroom or separate schools with curriculum that didn’t fit their needs (Artiles, 2006, p. 260). Children were held to low standards, but fortunately that is not the way we see special education today. With the introduction of the Individual with Disabilities Education Act otherwise known in IDEA in 2004 we see more of a movement towards inclusion (Department of Education, 2004).…

    Every student has experienced a time when they struggled in school, whether they had a difficult time grasping a concept, had trouble answering a question or was unsure how to study for an exam. These are common struggles that many students face when they are in elementary school, high school, college, and even graduate school. However, being the one student that encounters all those difficulties altogether, make it very challenging to achieve in school, especially when they are stigmatized for having a learning disability. Students with learning disabilities can either have a negative or positive school experience based on the attitudes and behaviors of their fellow classmates and teachers. These students often have negative school experiences…

    To begin to develop acceptance among students it is important to introduce typically developing children to those children who may have disabilities at an early age before students can develop harsh opinions. We have learned that dialectical constructivism may be the only successful approach to incorporating students with disabilities into a constructivist-learning environment. A dialectical constructivism classroom can be seen in what we are familiar with today as an “inclusion” style classroom. An inclusion classroom is made up of students with and without disabilities. Vygotsky feels “ that all children develop by play and to take students with disabilities out of the equation can be departmental to their cognitive but also social development”(Mallory & New, 1994, p.331).…

    Among the advantages of inclusion system, let's consider the disadvantages the most. To the point that every children with disability needs an extra care and attention to an adult or even to a teacher for the reason that they manifest things different from the normal beings. They may manifest behaviors that will require attention and will result into behavioral difficulties (Comfort, 1988; MacCoby, 1983; Roedell 1984). Each student have their extraordinary behaviors which makes a teacher's mind divided into two portions, (1) to understand special children and (2) to manage normal students. These things may tolerate teachers when they hear about "Inclusion System".…
