Application of a social-ecological model to students with disabilities in schools calls for supports to be provided that increase access to inclusive settings; requiring educators to identify, arrange, and implement supports. Yet, little is known about educator perceptions of importance of different types of supports. Therefore, an investigation of the relative priority educators’ ascribed to different types of supports provided in inclusive settings was investigated.

Learning Objectives:

As a result of this session, participants will be able to describe the social-ecological approach to understanding individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities (ID/DD) and the importance of this approach in identifying the support needs of children with ID/DD. Based on study findings, participants will be able to describe educator perceptions of the importance and intensity of different types of supports provided to students with disabilities as a method to increasing their engagement in regulation education classrooms. Lastly, participants will be able to describe implications and future directions for research with respect to providing supports to students with ID/DD in order to increase participation and bridge the gap between personal competency and environmental demands.
