A researched approach developed by three inclusive education experts from the University of New Hampshire¿s respected Institute on Disability. Presumes competence and encourages high expectations, so all students reach their full potential. It is consistent with the problem-solving framework of the popular and effective Response to Intervention model. Goes beyond functional skills to help students learn general education curriculum content. It fosters successful collaborative teaming, so the educational team engages in honest and respectful communication, makes sound decisions, and works on adjustments if needed. A flexible and adaptable, not a rigid ¿cookbook¿ approach to inclusive education planning. Will help teachers support students¿ communication through effective use of augmentative communication strategies. Facilitates strong family-school partnerships, so education professionals and parents learn from each other's expert knowledge. This accessible book guides educators and administrators through every phase of the Beyond Access Model, from assessing current student supports to reviewing and sustaining the benefits of new inclusive education strategies. Vignettes and examples¿including a detailed, real-life ¿before and after¿ case study¿vividly illustrate how the model improves students¿ educational experience and outcomes. And more than a dozen adaptable checklists, forms, and templates give educators the structure they need as they begin planning and implementing inclusion strategies. An innovative model that can transform schools and lives, Beyond Access will ensure that students with disabilities enjoy the benefits of full membership, participation, and learning within truly inclusive classroom communities.
