Aberdeen City Council has been forced to shell out for the schooling of a disabled child
This is wonderful news! I truly hope we can see positive changes going forward.
There seems to be an ongoing confusion between inclusion and integration for our children. Inclusion is not just simply placing a disabled child into a school, this is integration. There are real risks associated with focusing primarily on integration and largely ignoring inclusion.
False inclusion is unethical and unlawful and ultimately results in trauma.
We need to be pro active and not reactive.
Early Intervention is key.
