How can K–12 educators break down the barriers to full inclusion and teach all learners effectively? Curriculum modifications are the key—and Nicole Eredics is the expert!

A seasoned educator and creator of popular blog The Inclusive Class, Eredics introduces you to the what and how of inclusion in this motivating, reader-friendly guidebook. You'll start with a big-picture guide to creating an inclusive culture in your classroom and school, with invaluable guidance on key topics like team collaboration, universal design for learning, co-teaching, social-emotional supports, and accommodations.

Review by: Sandra Assimotos McElwee, Author of Who’s the Slow Learner? A Chronicle of Inclusion and Exclusion
I often hear educators ask ‘how’ to do inclusion. This book is the ‘how’ they've been searching for. Every educator should have this book in their mailbox!
Review by: Lisa Dieker, University of Central Florida
This book provides a great foundation for educators or parents to understand the inclusion movement for students with more complex needs. Nicole provides a plethora of resources grounded in work samples for curriculum modifications to help bridge the gap for students with targeted academic needs.
