Associate Professor of Education Robert Osgood presents The History of Inclusion in the United States, a chronicle of the practice of inclusion in special education. Before the 1960s, students considered disabled were as a matter of course segregated from their nondisabled peers; only in recent decades have such practices been challenged and transformed into more integrative approaches that encourage more interaction between children of all ability levels. Chapters delineate the evolution of more inclusive and integrative approaches, pioneer individuals and legislation, and educational policy questions debated in the present day. An excellent resource for gauging the effects of history and recommendations for the future of special education.

Robert L. Osgood is chair of Teacher Education and professor of Education at St. Norbert College.
