10 Reasons to Support Inclusive School Communities for ALL Students

10. Parental Involvement

When children with disabilities are included in their local schools, their parents can participate to a greater extent in that school and in the community where the school is located. Parents of included students can be a part of a support network of parents of other children with disabilities, as well as parents of children without disabilities. Such support is more difficult to access when a child’s school is a long distance from home or when families do not feel welcome.
