Benefits of Inclusive Education

People love lumping things together in neat and tidy categories. Unfortunately, that temptation can work against us when it comes to educating children with and without disabilities.At Scottsdale Children’s Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona, our learning specialists provide inclusive educational opportunities for children of all capacity levels. See how this approach gives all of our students the opportunity to learn and thrive in a safe and supportive environment.

What sets inclusive education apart

Our applied behavior analysis (ABA) experts rely on science-based models to create an optimal, inclusive education environment. We use:


  • The latest, evidence-based theories on learning
  • Teaching methods that make subjects relevant and meaningful
  • Alternatives to traditional “paper and pencil” assessments
  • A balanced approach to literacy and interdisciplinary curriculum
  • Technology to increase communication and access to general education

Each child also receives individualized attention in an age-appropriate learning environment. This inclusive approach means that different and diverse students have the opportunity to learn side by side within the same classroom, during field trips, and in after-school activities.

Inclusive education is all about collaboration

If you have a child who requires special attention, many people assume you can get better outcomes by separating them from the group so they can get more one-on-one attention. But, in our inclusive education setting, children benefit from an entire community working together as a team in a more supportive way — from their fellow students and friends to specialists who can address their unique needs.

We accomplish this with a low staff-to-student ratio, which ensures your child has the support they need to excel, whether they have challenges or not. Plus, our inclusive education system involves parent and caregiver participation, so everyone can play a role in their education.

Why inclusive education matters

When you educate children together in spite of their differences, you foster an environment where every child has a sense of belonging. That makes these inclusive systems key to changing discriminatory attitudes and nurturing healthy characteristics, such as respect, patience, and understanding. In fact, inclusive education systems help teach:

  • Tolerance and acceptance
  • Positive social relationships
  • Improved communication and social skills

By giving young people the opportunity to learn together, you also create a more enriching and quality educational experience for everyone involved. Research shows this way of teaching can lead to significant academic gains for students of all capabilities.
