IDENTIFICATION STRATEGIES FOR STUDENTS WITH MILDTO-MODERATE DISABILITIES The concept of integrating children with disabilities into regular classrooms and educational settings and providing the support and adaptations to make them successful is a relatively new practice. Effective practices used in inclusive classrooms have been found to be beneficial for all students, including those with disabilities, those who struggle academically and socially and students without disabilities (Antonette, 2003).

The practice of mainstreaming did not ensure active collaboration of students with disabilities with their non-disabled peers. Until the mid 1980s, there was no guarantee that a child with a disability would receive an appropriate and free public education (Manton, Gu, & Lamb, 2006). The special education movement received a substantial boost when Public Law 94142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (EAHCA), became a law in 1975 (Dorries & Haller, 2001). States did not need to be in full compliance with law until 1981.

Moving from the goal of a free and appropriate education to meaningful inclusion has taken decades to achieve and is still a work in progress. A wide range of political, epistemological, and institutional factors have manipulated the practice of inclusion into the child-centered focus we see in today’s classrooms. Several significant legislative and litigation events have propelled all children’s access to a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE). Other key issues such as efficacy, efficiency, community, legality, economy, power and identity, and axiology have shaped both the content and trajectory of the inclusion debates in the twentieth century.
