Inclusion Series- Alternative Educational Delivery Systems
Alternative delivery systems are management systems used in Inclusion classrooms that provide support for students and maximize learning while being presented with the core curriculum. It is an approach that uses success-oriented presentations and the elements of collaboration and school based coordination in its implementation. The goal of alternative delivery systems is to develop many creative ways of working together for the benefit of all students.
The following are examples of how school specialists i.e. psychologist, special education teacher, can enhance and assist the classroom teacher in the delivery of information to students.
The impact of alternative service delivery systems can result in:
- more assistance provided to help all students in general classrooms
- increased support for classroom teachers to expand the use of a range of instructional strategies for diverse student needs
- increased teacher effectiveness
- improved students’ academic performance and behavior
- increased classroom teacher understanding/skills, and confidence in intervening with students at risk
- increased support for the classroom teacher
- increased coordination of individualized and classroom instruction
