Must-See TV: Neurodiversity - The Next Frontier for Civil Rights?


By Joshua Chaffee
February 13, 2013

A school in New York City is expanding the definition of diversity, and putting kids of varying developmental ability side-by-side in the classroom. The IDEAL School of Manhattan is breaking new ground on inclusion education, creating an environment where students with developmental disabilities are never pulled out of class, and are taught the same lessons as students without special needs.

Correspondent Alex Wagner visited the IDEAL School and discusses the idea of “neurodiversity” with the NOW panel.

The Ideal School in New York City represents a
new frontier in education where kids with mental
and physical disabilities are learning alongside
students with no special conditions, providing
each student with a unique education plan.
