Inclusion QuickTips: Assisting Students Who Use Wheelchairs

Today’s tips are for: Inclusive K-12 schools

The challenge: How can we best support the mobility of students who use wheelchairs?

When a student uses a wheelchair, it can be difficult to know when to provide help and when to step back. Some students can get around on their own with no assistance or minimal help, while others might need a little more support moving from place to place.

Today’s download is a free quick-guide on assisting students who use wheelchairs (from the book Quick-Guides to Inclusion by Michael Giangreco & Mary Beth Doyle). It’s concise, but packed with useful tips on how to:

  • determine if a student needs assistance
  • help a student transfer to and from a wheelchair
  • navigate curbs and ramps with ease
  • and more
