Mainstream classrooms are often considered the least restrictive environment for children with special needs. Bright Hub writers offer help to both teachers and parents who are navigating the sometimes rough waters of inclusion. Teachers can get tips on how to handle students with special needs in their mainstream classroom, as well as implementing those 504 plans and IEPs. Parents can learn what their legal rights are through IDEA and distinguish between 504 plans and IEPs. Articles contained within this guide are well-researched and based on real-life experiences. They are also updated regularly, to keep up with the latest research and legal information.
