Definition of Inclusion
All learners are included in an educational setting that addresses their current needs based on collaboration amongst stakeholders.
Inclusion is a value system, a way of thinking and acting, which demonstrates that all students are entitled to equitable access to learning and achievement in all aspects of their education. The practice of inclusion transcends the idea of physical location, and incorporates basic values that promote participation, friendship and interaction. It also means that all students will have equitable opportunity to be included in the typical learning environment or program. Schools that embody effective principles and practices of inclusion coordinate and unify education programs and supports in order to ensure that all students belong and can learn effectively.
