Two American academics, Leslie Soodak and Elisabeth Erwin, argue that for inclusive education to work properly it has to be more than placing disabled students in a mainstream classroom. Advocacy planning, commitment and support are essential conditions for inclusion to prosper. Their article can be downloaded from the UCP website.

MAA is undertaking a Classroom Access Project with the Catholic Education Office and La Salle College in Bankstown, Sydney, looking at a ‘model classroom’ that combines different technologies to assist hearing impaired students in the inclusive setting.
