As an increasing number of students with disabilities are being included into regular classes, there is growing consensus among teachers about what supports need to be in place for inclusion to be manageable and successful.
Based on personal experience and the input of classroom teachers throughout North America, Emma Van der Kliftand Norman Kunc examine five areas of support which need to be present if teachers are to welcome students with disabilities into their classrooms: 
- Information
- Collaborative Planning 
- Shared Agreement on Goals and Expectations 
- Classroom and School Based Supports 
- Classroom Assistants 
This session also addresses the question of fair and appropriate evaluation and briefly describes some ideas for supporting students with atypical or disruptive behaviour.
