The Inclusive Class Podcast is for families and schools who are interested in learning about the inclusion of children with special needs in the general education classroom. Include all!
Inclusion is More Than a Program
Gary Brucker, Program Director for Courage for Youth Association and Lauri Swann Hunt, founder of Ollibean, are guests at our roundtable this week. The topic we are discussing is the notion that inclusion is more than a program and is based on attitudes and belief systems. In addition, it is important that schools must foster these attitudes through emotional and relational development in students. This is a discussion you won't want to miss!
Should Support Staff Help or Hover?
Listen to Frances Stetson and Mary Eaddy.
Presuming Competence in Your Students with Special Needs
How should we be teaching our students with special needs? We start by presuming competence and believing that all children be held to high academic expectations. To hear more about the importance of presuming competence, listen to guests, Paula Lieb and Lauri Swann Hunt share their thoughts with Nicole and Terri.

Not just for special education!
I have been a fan of The Inclusive Class for a long time and watching them grow and reach to the teachers and self-advocates is an awesome goal of their program. Keep listening!
I was hoping to listen to these while we are doing distance learning. None of them will open up. They say they are temporarily unavailable. Help please.
A great tool for teachers
As a teacher, I listen to this podcast ready to go with a notebook in hand. These episodes include great strategies for dealing with children who have challenges in the classroom.
