The first part of this essay surveys current debates about including disabled students in special education versus mainstream education. Allan then moves into discussing how the arts, such as literature and dance, can be effective routes of inclusion and expression for disabled students. This article would be helpful for any professor, across the disciplines, that wishes to engage in disability studies.
