Integration is not Inclusion
Young people with special educational needs being placed by local authorities in separate schools or units
This tends to force disabled people to lead a separate life
Young people with special educational needs being placed in mainstream provision with some adaptations and resources but on condition that the young person can fit in with pre-existing structures, attitudes and an unaltered environment.
This is a necessary pre - condition of inclusion but is not a solution.
Young people with Special educational needs being placed in mainstream provision, where there is a commitment to removing all barriers to the full participation of each child as a valued, unique individual.
This is what we want!
