Inclusion is seen as a universal human right. The aim of inclusion is to embrace all people irrespective of race, gender, disability, medical or other need. It is about giving equal access and opportunities and getting rid of discrimination and intolerance (removal of barriers). It affects all aspects of public life.
Benefits of inclusion for people with (or without) disabilities:
• Gaining friendship skills,
• Improve self esteem
• Allows other to be role models for others
• Problem Solving Skills,
• Positive Self-Image,
• Respect for others
All these facts can trickle down to their families as well, teaching parents and families to be more accepting of differences.
