4.Accommodating Nate (Type I Diabetes)
Describe the changes in the teachers’ responsibilities after Nate was diagnosed and required specialized care in the classroom.
Think about ways in which the teachers altered the classroom environment so that Nate did not “stand out” from his peers. What other strategies might you use in creating an inclusive settings?
The teachers “worked really hard at making sure Nate was thought of as a preschooler (with Type ( Diabetes), NOT a diabetic kid.” Why is this approach beneficial for all children, including those with and without disabilities?
It is very important not to let any kid stand out due to any disability as it fosters stereotypes and prejudice among kids which develop strongly in adulthood. This also main point behind IDEA by government, all kids receive equal and fair education. This also promotes bonding between disabled and non disabled children. Children come to know in young age that everyone has done or the point and lacks some or the other. They help right in the young age.
Due to the approach taken by school Bate would not feel any left out feeling and she would behave in normal way. Similarly even other kids would get to know her and would not feel any difference or lay any difference.
