Benefits of Inclusion for Students without Special Educational Needs


Benefits of Inclusion for Students without Special Educational Needs.

The benefits of inclusion for students with SEN are as follows:
  • Spending the school day alongside classmates who do not have disabilities provides many opportunities for social interaction that would not be available in segregated settings.
  • Children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) have appropriate models of behavior. They can observe and imitate the socially acceptable behavior of the students without Special Educational Needs (SEN).
  • Teachers often develop higher standards of performance for students with SEN.
  • Both general and special educators in inclusive settings expect appropriate conduct from all students.
  • Students with Special Educational Needs (SEN) are taught age-appropriate, functional components of academic content, which may never be part of the curriculum in segregated settings (for example, the sciences, social studies, etc.).
  • Attending inclusive schools increases the probability that students with Special Educational Needs (SEN) will continue to participate in a variety of integrated settings throughout their lives.
  •  Students without SEN have a variety of opportunities for interacting with peers of their own age who experience SEN, in inclusive school settings.
  • They may serve as peer tutors during instructional activities.
  • They may play the role of a special “buddy” for the children with SEN during lunch, in the bus, or on the playground.
  • Children without Special Educational Needs (SEN) can learn a good deal about tolerance, individual difference, and human exceptionality by interacting with those with SEN.
  • Children without SEN can learn that students with SEN have many positive characteristics and abilities.
  • Children without SEN have the chance to learn about many of the human service professions, such as, special education, speech therapy, physical therapy, recreational therapy, and vocational rehabilitation. For some, exposure to these areas may lead their making a career in any of these areas later on.
  • Inclusion offers the opportunity for students without SEN to learn to communicate, and deal effectively with a wide range of individuals. This also prepares them to fully participate in a pluralistic society when they are adults.
  • Inclusive education ensures that a school responds to the educational needs of children in the neighbourhood. It brings a school closer to the community.
