Renaissance Group "The Whats and How-Tos of Inclusive Education." Here, find an overview of the philosophy of inclusion, as well as teaching strategies for successfully educating students with disabilities. Other info includes practical suggestions such as financial considerations and the best ways to work constructively with parents. This site would be especially helpful for preservice educators or others who are new to the practice of inclusion.
Circle of Inclusion Note: Early childhood service providers and families of young children, go here first. The Circle's Internet resources offer "demonstrations of and information about the effective practices of inclusive educational programs for children from birth to age eight." A nifty "Search for Programs" feature allows you to identify inclusion programs by such options as location (rural, urban, and suburban), ages of children served (0-2, 3-5, and 5-8), and approaches to curriculum (Montessori, National Association for the Education of Young Children, High Scope).
Enabling Education Network The University of Manchester in England provides a worldwide perspective on inclusion. The site aims to disseminate information on inclusionary practices and to support and promote the inclusion of marginalized groups in education. Here, find information on educating the deaf in Afghanistan, national policies of inclusion in England, and helping to educate disabled refugees in Nepal.
The Inclusion Network This site goes beyond the schoolhouse and aims for ways to engage "people with disabilities in all our daily activitiesat school, at work, at home, and in the community." The site features an Inclusion Marketplace, helping those with disabilities obtain jobs, as well as Inclusion Consulting Services that employers can use to help set up their workplace to accommodate those with disabilities.
