Successful inclusive education happens through accepting, understanding, and attending to student differences and diversity, which can include physical, cognitive, academic, social, and emotional. This is not to say that students never need to spend time out of regular education classes, because sometimes they do for a very particular purpose — for instance, for speech or occupational therapy. But the goal is this should be the exception.The driving principle is to make all students feel welcomed, appropriately challenged, and supported in their efforts.
