LIFE IS INCLUSIVE. WE SHOULD PREPARE FOR IT.
Elementary Ed tells the story of Daniel and Cory, two 5th graders on the autism spectrum at Ed Smith Elementary in Syracuse, N.Y. The school has been recognized for its total inclusion of children with special needs in an ‘inclusive’ classroom.
Like many other urban public schools, Ed Smith educates many children on a small budget. Elementary Ed sheds insight about the challenge of educating children with autism and perhaps a window of light about their academic future.
