4. Research on teaching exceptional students and inclusive education

Read the literature on teaching exceptional students and find out more for yourself about the challenges and benefits inclusive classroom education.
You may choose to:
a) focus on one or some physical and/or intellectual disabilities and the unique issues they present for teaching and students' schooling;

Search databases such as ERIC, PsycINFO, Australian Education Index and EdNA Online using terms like 'early intervention', 'integration', 'inclusion', 'disability', 'mainstreaming', 'learning difficulties', 'gifted education', 'ASD', 'vision impairment', etc.
Discuss your findings and informed views on Moodle.
