7. An appropriate support for all
At the end of this chapter, teachers will have learned to: develop various forms of support to help all pupils to learn
- be aware of the importance of the role of support in differentiation
- reflect on the type of support that they, teachers, need and/or will be able to benefit from
- reflect on work conditions when another person works alongside them in the classroom.
Becoming an inclusive school is not easy and it is crucial to consider the types of support that both pupils and teachers need. Teachers can use various support strategies to promote learning and the inclusion of all. It is important to remember that teachers working towards an inclusive school will need support; it is a process that frequently challenges their (often long-held) own values, attitudes and their practice.
