Integration is not Inclusion

Segregation
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

Integration
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.

Inclusion
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!
