1. What is your definition of inclusion?
Inclusion is when all students are educated in the general education classroom regardless of their disability.

2. Do you have experience in an inclusive classroom?

Yes
3. How do you feel that inclusion is working in your classroom?
It is difficult and challenging for teachers to provide differentiated education to all students. Sometimes inclusion is good, students actually benefit from it, but sometimes students are included that are not necessarily appropriate for that setting.
4. Some believe that inclusion of students with disabilities in regular education classrooms take away from students without disabilities. What is your opinion?

I don't think that it impacts other students. I think it helps teach them about student's with disabilities. It exposes them to experiences that they may not have necessarily experienced. It helps them to be more tolerant.

5. Do you feel that it is difficult to modify instruction and your teaching style to meet the needs of students with disabilities? Why or Why not giving a brief explanation? Yes it is difficult, because some special education students require additional individual instruction which teachers don't necessarily have time for.

6. Do you feel that the school districts do a good job explaining the inclusion program to parents?

yes

7. What are your biggest concerns and frustrations with inclusion?
My biggest concern is that the students may not be maximizing their potential. They may miss out on important information. They don't always get the differentiated instruction that the need because teachers don't know how to provide it.

8. Do you feel that being in an inclusion classroom has been positive for your child? It is positive because children are surrounded by normal developing children and learn about expections.

9. Has being in an inclusion classroom affected the child academically, socially, and behaviorally? If yes tell how.
I would say more socially and behaviorally. Academically they could do better elsewhere with one-on-one.
10. What things do you enjoy most about inclusion?

1. children are exposed to more experiences
2. Learn to manage behaviors
3. children learn from their normal developing peers like they would with a sibling.
