In our April newsletter we gave you a “sneak peek” at a flexible seating practice in a Vermont inclusive classroom. Here’s the rest of the story about how general and special educators worked together to create meaningful opportunities for a student to experience full membership and belonging….
ALL students had flexible seating options, making it very natural for a student with a low incidence disability to lay on his bed seat at floor level with his communication supports nearby (photo above). The class learned that when they move to the next grade level, their classmate will need to work at desk eye level. They worked on possible designs for his new seating so that he can continue as a full member of their class (check out one of the creative designs below).
