An inclusive education system is one that demonstrates behaviours and decisions that reflect valuing all students. Inclusive education is not just programming for students with special needs or disabilities. The process of getting to know oneself and others leads to staff and students developing empathy for others while contributing to the welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment.
Some learners have profound and ongoing needs and others have short-term or situation-based needs - every learner’s needs are unique. Inclusive Education calls for flexible and responsive learning within environments that can adapt to the changing needs of learners.
