This ethnographic study investigated how educators support students with complex support needs to access the grade-level literacy curriculum within elementary, general education classrooms. Examination of multiple data sources across four classrooms in one school revealed a comprehensive understanding of how the educators support the focus students to be included in grade-level literacy activities using both class-wide and individualized strategies. The findings of this study contribute to the knowledge of how to implement inclusive practices in general education classrooms, which may support increased implementation of inclusive education. The findings of this study also illustrated the educators' passion and excitement for implementing the best possible strategies and practices in order to ensure that the students with complex support needs are held to high expectations, that they are successful, and that they are true members of the classroom community.
