The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of using self-management strategies in an inclusive setting. Participants in this study were students who receive special education services and also attend classes in an inclusive setting. For a student to enjoy the benefits of receiving inclusion services, they need skills to be successful in the classroom. A self-management strategy was introduced to students that receive inclusion services. Students practiced the self-management strategy that was taught to them based on their individual needs. The participants were then observed in their inclusive classrooms to see if they are able to effectively use that self-management strategy. The goal was to have the strategy increase the student’s success level in their mainstream classroom therefore increasing the benefits they receive from inclusion. Findings from this study concluded that students were able to increase their independence, confidence level, and academic skills after being taught a self-monitoring strategy.
