Welcome to · Teaching for Inclusion

Do you teach a student who has comprehension difficulties, has difficulty following instructions or may constantly interrupt others?

These are only but a few of the many Learning Traits students may display in your classroom on a daily basis.

Teaching in an inclusive classroom is an exhilarating challenge for even the most experienced professional. A variety of learning materials and teaching strategies can be tailored to accommodate all students with a little forward planning.
