Inclusive Programming addresses transitioning to and from middle school, and everything in between: hormones, cliques, bullying, aggression, and "fitting in." The ingredients for success are pre-planning, frequent monitoring of progress, teacher training, and regular communication between all concerned. Add committed teachers, peer mentors/tutors, sensible allowances for individual students' needs (extra test time, visual/oral format, concrete language, less or different homework, a sensory-safe environment, social skills training) as called for, and you have a recipe for success. You'll find many helpful charts/resources in the Appendices. Helpful chapters include: Autism in a Nutshell Inclusion Discussion Profiles and Characteristics of Middle School Students Formation of an Individual Education Plan (IEP) Behavior Programming in Middle School Academic Issues of Middle School Students Social Programming Collaborative Roles
