Do you known that many pupils with disabilities are successfully learning and joining in the same classroom with their friends and neighbors who are not disabled? Inclusion is possible for ALL learners, including YOUR child. The key to success for inclusion is to have a positive outlook, build the services and supports necessary to insure a good program.
