Inclusion of people with disabilities and special health care needs is part of a larger picture than simple placement in jobs or classrooms with non-disabled peers. It is being included in all aspects of life and participating using one’s abilities in daily activities as a full member of their schools and communities.

Framework for Access and Belonging (FAB)

The Framework for Access and Belonging (FAB) is a structured process to analyze the instructional, physical, and social environment of a general education setting from the perspective of an individual student. The intended outcome of using the FAB is to have an implementation plan, through the use of supplementary aids and services, that expands participation and learning for a student with a disability.
