“We were able to make an incontrovertible case that the genetic risk contributing to autism is genetic risk that exists in all of us, and influences our behaviour and social communication”
Dr Mark Daly, co-director of the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT
All learners in are varying societies should feel welcomed and valued, they should also feel safe and confident in any environment they find themselves.
Sometimes I wonder the way some of the derogatory terms, labels will enable most learners.
Our goal is to assist them to develop their talents, pursue their aspirations and make positive contributions to any environment they find themselves in whilst achieving their personal goals.
Inclusive education is simply the key, most parents are highly vulnerable to the whims and caprices of providers especially in developing countries adopting quick fixes and charging outrageous fees for parents to pay despite the challenges they are faced with already!!
Our attitudes, approaches and strategies must ensure that learners are not excluded entirely or isolated from varying opportunities. All learners have the right to be educated and to work alongside their peers with flexibility of teaching, learning and assessments.
“Inclusive education is a social justice issue because it creates a society that values ALL equally – not only does it benefit disabled students, but all students, because they learn the strength of diversity and equality, lose their fear of difference, and develop empathy for others”
