Inclusion is the fruit of a long term investment. It requires tremendous patience, hard work, commitment and faith in the child concerned. Our society hasn’t internalized the idea of inclusion and the task can be very challenging and sometimes discouraging. Less than 50% of the students we have included have remained in the mainstream. Peer pressure, competitive academics, and poor infrastructure and resources are some reasons why children with disability are unable to cope in mainstream schools. However, parents have the right to change this and insist on inclusive education for their child. Make sure special schools are the last resort and not your only hope.
