The term ‘Inclusion’ means the act of including. Inclusion values diversity meaning that no-one is left out and ensuring everyone feels valued and places individuals at the centre of planning and support. Inclusion embodies the values, policies, and practices that support the right of every infant and child and his or her family, regardless of ability, to participate in a broad range of activities and contexts. The desired results of inclusive experiences for children with and without disabilities and their families include a sense of belonging, recognising, accepting and celebrating differences and similarities.
Inclusive practice is based on medical and social model of disability, it is easy to understand the issue of inclusive practise for children and young people.
