A Bridge Over Troubled Water: Facility Needs for Inclusive Classrooms

Web Abstract: 
Based on the premise that no student is disabled, the authors of this article on inclusive classrooms call for universal design in schools that meets the needs of ALL students, each of whom possesses different abilities. In addition to a definition of and background on inclusive education, attention is paid to barrier-free legislation, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Other topics addressed are: 1) User Perception of Space; 2) Socially Responsible Design; and 3) Universal Designs. Also included are a facility programming paradigm diagram, matrix of user needs, and references.
