"Successful inclusion begins and ends with our capacity for valuing others. We cannot include those we do not value. Fortunately, we can learn to value others, even those we see as different or less. Those of us who want to experience this type of inclusion must teach, educate, and inspire. This inclusion education takes place at home, in the community, and in the classroom."
Natalie Colcombe's comment, February 21, 2014 12:08 AM
Successful inclusion also has roots at home. Parents need to be supportive of their child, and their situation. Two groups of people are epecially important for inclusion, teachers and therapists.
