In most cases, it has been established that this lack of adequate supervised practice is caused by many factors, but some of them include inadequate staff for supervision and lack of enough facilities.
When handling students with disabilities in learning and reading, only being aware of the strategies required to apply is not enough. The most important thing to do for these children is to provide an intensive and systematic practice in how the strategies should be applied to the learning activities of the children. To achieve this, there should be adequate support from teachers, peers and parents. However, in the inclusive classroom, the most important person to implement this issue is the teacher. When the teachers are very few, or when they are not properly trained, they might not be able to implement these strategies effectively.
Inclusive classroom is regarded as a teacher-led classroom where intense and thorough supervision should be provided to the students with learning disabilities. Collaborative strategies should, therefore, exist between teachers with special training to handle special students with disabilities and teachers trained to handle normal classes (Conti-DAntonio, Marcia, Bertrando, Robert, & Eisenberger, 1998). The same collaboration should be extended to the parents since they also contribute a larger part in influencing the learning behaviors of their children with disabilities.
It is not just enough to beef-up staff in the inclusive classroom to deliver the services required, however, it is necessary to realize that the staff handling the students are well trained to deliver the services in a better way (Bauer & Shea, 1999). For instance, various teaching strategies should be applied when teaching various subjects. Students with disabilities in learning may experience some difficulties in computational and basic counting skills. This means that they may have ...Show more
