Difference Between Inclusion and Resource
Offering assistance to students who need different levels of support
The inclusion program offers assistance to students who need support for more than 50% of their school day. Often these students have the support of a teaching assistant in the classroom to assist them with daily classroom assignments.
The resource program offers assistance to students who need special education support for less than 50% of the school day. These students receive small group instruction or classroom support from a special education teacher both in their classroom and in the resource room.
