How the Inclusive Practices Tools work

The Inclusive Practices Tools and review process are designed to assist school staff to consider what inclusion means.

The Inclusive Practices Tools:

  • focus on practices, systems, and structures rather than conditions or disabilities
  • describe inclusive education practices as they apply to all students, while using examples that are drawn from research on common barriers experienced by students with additional learning needs or disabilities
  • use language that is inclusive of all students
  • aim to promote the view that the idea of inclusion applies to all students, and student diversity is a resource for learning.
