Chalk Talk: Different Abilities
The classroom environment is different that it was even 15 years ago. There was a time when students who had learning disabilities, physical disabilities, and impairments were put in separate classrooms. That doesn’t happen as much any more. Today, kids with disabilities and impairments are “mainstreamed,” or put into classrooms with students who do not have disabilities or impairments. If your child is sharing a classroom with a student with a disability or impairment let him or her know that it is okay to ask you questions. Your child is likely curious about the other student’s life and feelings. Answer the questions honestly and accurately. It is important for your child to learn more about the people who are part of his or her life. This will help to foster the goal of inclusiveness that schools strive for for all students, and help students see how people with certain disabilities often have a great number of other outstanding abilities.
