Inclusion is about making everything in the community accessible to everyone, disability or no. This means our schools, public buildings, transportation, sidewalks, playgrounds, etc… The environment in its entirety.
Renee Salas
There is nothing soft about the bigotry of low expectations.
Henry Frost
Our number one issue is still old attitudes towards us, and those old attitudes see us as helpless and unable and disability can make you very strong and very able.
Ed Roberts
Actually, disability is not something one overcomes. Stories that claim successful people with disabilities overcame their disabilities mislead the public. The barriers exist not in the person, but in the physical, social, and digital environment. People with disabilities and their communities succeed when the community decides to dismantle digital, attitudinal, and physical barriers. My success at school, in the office, and even on the dance floor were facilitated by communities that chose to practice inclusion.
Haben Girma
Inclusion means living in a society that embraces the diversity of human beings. It means inclusion is a way of life and manifests itself in every aspect of our culture, from the schools and education, to the work place and everything in between… It means paradise!
Ariane Zurcher
Children know through our words and actions what our expectations of them are whether they are disabled or not. Believe in your child.
Tonya Whitlock
Equal access, level playing field, dignity, respect for my son and all his community. No separate classrooms separate doors or isolation from others.
Kerima Cevik
We have no idea what someone is capable of learning unless information is presented in a way that is accessible to them and they have a reliable means to communicate their understanding. Teach them everything.
Lauri Swann Hunt

All children should grow up feeling loved accepted and whole. Not just at home, but in their schools and communities.

Judith Snow ~ Relationships & Inclusion

"The research shows that when a child who is not academically gifted is included in a regular school, not only do the academics improve across the school, and I did say that, I didn’t say “in the classroom”, I said “across the school”, not only do the academics improve, but drug use and violence goes down."
