Myths & Facts about Inclusionary Practices

Special education has its fair share of myths and facts about the inclusion of students receiving special education services, especially those with significant cognitive disabilities. These common misconceptions often lead to situations where students are denied their right to spend the maximum amount of time in general education settings and doing work aligned to the state learning standards. OSPI Special Education, the TIES Center, and UW Haring Center developed this resource to challenge those myths and highlight the facts of why inclusionary practices work for each and every student.
