Since the movement to educate students with disabilities in an inclusive classroom environment has become prevalent, so has the need for additional teacher training. This paper addressed the vital importance of teacher preparation associated with the inclusive classroom by using a teacher in-service training program this author has created. This in-service addressed several factors, for educators, which are critical to the academic success of students with disabilities in a general education classroom. The areas addressed in this in-service are; (a) available resources, (b) instructional techniques and (c) the development of at home activities. All of these areas can be used by the educational staff to enhance learning and retention for students with disabilities in the inclusive classroom environment.
