“Self-contained Classroom of Today”

 In Articles

Are you responsible for a self-contained special education classroom?

If so, we know that you foster enhanced support for students with special needs or specific difficulties.  And when we say enhanced support, you might be using different techniques or programs to provide struggling students with specialized interventions.

Thoughtco defined self-contained classrooms as classrooms specifically designated for children with disabilities. Self-contained programs are usually indicated for children with more serious disabilities who may not be able to participate in general education programs at all. These disabilities include autism, emotional disturbances, severe intellectual disabilities, multiple handicaps and children with serious or fragile medical conditions.  Students assigned to these programs have often been assigned to less restrictive environments and have failed to succeed, or they started in targeted programs designed to help them succeed.

What is the purpose of a “Self-contained Special Education Classroom?”

Is there such a thing as “PERFECT” self-contained classroom?

Some special education teachers shared their best practices for a successful “Self-contained Classroom.”  These practices you might already be using or you might want to emulate!

We are not affiliated with any organization mentioned in this article but we thought that sharing this will give you other ideas as to how to be more effective in a self-contained classroom.  Techniques or programs may vary from school to school but one thing is common, it is a passionate heart that every special education teachers give to each student they have – that makes learning a bit easier.
