Collaboration for Successful Inclusion: Exceptional Students in the Instrumental Ensemble
- When performance is a primary goal, many directors may not have the knowledge to successfully include students with disabilities in instrumental ensembles, yet accommodations can be made to create a successful learning environment for all. This session will provide information and encouragement to all instrumental educators regarding the inclusion of special learners in performance based ensembles through the use of educational supports, as well as collaborating with special education teachers.
