Those who feel as if students should not be included in the classroom tend to focus on the negative aspects of inclusion, such as the challenges and hard work it requires. However, studies show that full inclusion has many benefits to the students, both those who are disabled and those who are not. Inclusion has shown to improve the student's social skills, encourage communication, spark laws and regulations, and improve the overall schooling experience. With a lot of time, effort, and patience, full inclusion can be done in the classroom, with its benefits outweighing the hard work that it requires. Teacher attitude is the first key step in successfully including a disabled student in the classroom.
This shift increases their independence by transferring reliance on an individual to an alternative stimulus such as a visual support. This alternative support can then transition across environments and grows with the student as they progress through their education. One method of shifting this stimulus is structured teaching.

With the evidence supporting the use of structured teaching strategies, specifically the work system, for students with ASD, it would be constructive to generalize this intervention to students with other developmental disabilities.
Students who are hearing impaired, blind, or visually impaired may need differentiated pedagogical materials. More emphasis should be placed on visual materials for students with hearing impairments than for other students. Modifying instruction for all students, especially exceptional students, requires strong dependence on media, materials and technology and the right choice of these components to fit particular ends. Moreover, research has indicated that technology not only can be adapted for use with students with disabilities, but when used can enhance students' educational achievement and self-image. (Duhaney & Duhaney, 2000, p. 393) With this knowledge, there have been many new products that have been developed to help individualize programs to fit the criteria for specific disabilities.
This factor is very important for those children with disabilities for the reason that this factor could help them rebuild their self-esteem and self-confidence to themselves. A child can also become more active in classroom if he/she would develop that kind of attitude to himself. Parents must also feel that in the regular
There are trends in early childhood education that make student’s learning effective. First is minimizing the achievement gap because each early education center has a diverse group of students such as children from low-income families and foster homes. They may gain sufficient funding from the authorities when children are doing well academically and it will result in closing the achievement gap. Second is technology in the classroom. It is the software and resources that meet the needs of the students and enriches the current material they are learning.
In addition, a student needs assistive technology as a vital component that is part of accommodation. Assistive technology makes learning for the student easer and helps with learning. Assistive technologies can range from computer programs that read the literature to the child like Kurzweil, to simple tools like spell correction. The student can have his or her unique needs met and they will have more independence with their learning
When thinking about digital models and simulations, they could help teachers to expand on concepts which are either too small or too big to demonstrate well in a physical classroom (Buckingham, 2013). Through the incorporation of technology in learning, students have the ability to set up lessons for language which include native speakers who are from other countries and attend lessons via video conferencing. The process of learning from the native speakers, the learning via social interaction, and exposure of students to the perspectives of other student’s culture all are incredible educational benefits. Setting up the exchange of language is usually a natural process just like making a video conferencing call. Besides, incorporation of technology in learning promotes more efficient assessment.
Miller reveals from his research that students learn how to behave “cooperatively with older and younger students” and they learn to confront each other when problems arise rather than acting out and showing behavioral issues. Growing up in a smaller environment can be more beneficial than a single grade classroom because children learn to deal with social issues quicker than if they were in a larger more segregated setting. Along with several social benefits that are the results of a good classroom environment, having a multi-grade classroom can lead to several positive cognitive effects in
When technology is used effectively, students have the opportunity to develop skills that they may not get without the use of technology (Cleaver, 2011). Assessing and monitoring students is easier on the teacher because of the ability to use technology in the classroom. When technology is used correctly it offers limitless resources to a classroom atmosphere. Technology i... ... middle of paper ... ...them to succeed in the classroom. Although the look of the classroom has changed over the years, one thing still remains: teachers are the number one factor in a student’s educational experience.
Students under this policy can learn communication skills and have a better picture of how a society works in advance. Students all learn at a different rate and they all learn in a different style or manner. However, they all can learn something important from each other under this policy no matter what students' various IQs or abilities are. That is one of the benefits of interacting in a classroom environment - students learn from each other as well as from the teacher. Also, the academically stronger students can increase the incentive of the weaker students to work harder.
