What does inclusion look like?
Physically present and fully participating in the same environments as all other students for the same amount of time.
Socially all students are welcomed, supported to belong and not separated in the classroom or playground.
Curriculum is delivered so all students are included in the same lesson material, with appropriate support and adjustments.
What are the benefits of inclusion?
It allows students with AND without disabilities to:
- Enjoy a high-quality education consistent with better outcomes for ALL learners.
- Contribute their individual strengths and gifts, with high and appropriate expectations for each child.
- Grow up at the same school as their siblings, in a local community with peers.
- Work at their own pace while participating in the life of the school.
- Learn about and accept individual differences.
