Controversy often surrounds the inclusion of students with the most significant cognitive disabilities in the general education classroom and curriculum. This is the case even though the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is clear in its Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) provisions that the presumed education setting for all students with disabilities is the general education classroom. There are many myths about including students with the most significant cognitive disabilities in general education classrooms. This Brief debunks six of them. At the end of each myth there is a short list of related resources.
