Inclusive Education Q & A

What is inclusive education?

Inclusive education means that all students are welcomed and allowed in age-appropriate classrooms at Scottsdale Children’s Institute, regardless of the challenges they may have. 

The staff and teachers at Scottsdale Children’s Institute believe that every child deserves high-quality instruction, support, and intervention to help them achieve long-term success. 

At Scottsdale Children’s Institute, students with and without developmental or behavioral challenges fully participate in a supportive learning environment together. 

This provides students with a positive sense of belonging as they progress toward social, emotional, and academic goals. 

What are the benefits of inclusive education?

An inclusive classroom provides a common learning environment for children with and without developmental conditions, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD). 

The team at Scottsdale Children’s Institute values the inclusive model for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • Teaching children tolerance and acceptance of those who are different
  • Encouraging positive social relationships with peers
  • Providing greater access to the general education curriculum
  • Improving social and communications skills

Additionally, research shows that both typical and nontypical students make greater academic gains in an inclusive classroom. This may be due to the wide range of learning modalities in an inclusive classroom. 

For students with developmental disorders, inclusive education is also associated with fewer absences and a better attitude toward working and learning. 

What does inclusive education involve?

Just because a child with developmental or behavioral challenges is in an inclusive classroom doesn’t mean they don’t receive individualized attention. They do receive the majority of their instruction in a common, age-appropriate learning environment with peers of all capacities. 

The curriculum at Scottsdale Children’s Institute is highly customized and tailored to the needs of every student. The low staff-to-student ratio and the high level of support your child receives, whether they have challenges or not, sets the program at Scottsdale Children’s Institute apart from all others. 

The expert team at Scottsdale Children’s Institute uses a data-based system to track students’ progress on iPads. The data tracking ensures progress through customized goals, consistent performance evaluation, and implementation of modifications as needed.
