It is no cakewalk like the Obama administration is implying. We should not brand students with emotional or behavioral disabilities, nor should students without disabilities have to bear the brunt of ineffective inclusion placements that stymie their ability to learn. Most DHH students in inclusive programs are served by itinerant teachers.Itinerant teachers support individual DHH students by providing pull-out instruction for several hours a week.Schools should be set up to accommodate students with emotional and behavioral difficulties, without making children, or teens, feel stigmatized, and without ruining the education of students without disabilities.

Inclusion affects how a teacher is evaluated, and it could also matter as to whether a public school stays open.Over 86% of DHH students ages 6 to 21 years spend part of their day in general education settings, with 60% spending the majority of their day (80% or more) in a general education classroom.In practice, inclusion incorporates two underlying philosophical concepts: (1) general education classrooms and teachers change to accommodate the needs of diverse learners and (2) the general education teacher, rather than the special education teacher, is primarily responsible for educating special needs students.But the problem remains, that until traditional public schools find more viable solutions for serving all children, and teens, with behavioral and emotional disabilities, students will continue to appear to fail in the inclusion classroom, and in public schools, when they are put up against schools that can get rid of such difficult students.While Arne Duncan and company swear that high expectations is all that it takes, and that inclusion should be for everyone, they don’t take into consideration the effect inclusion has on students with emotional disabilities who need additional assistance—and those without disabilities.For students who are DHH several accommodations and modifications are available to support learning in the general education classroom.
