What is Inclusion?

26 Nov 2019

Down Syndrome Queensland (DSQ) has released an information video entitled, “What is Inclusion?”. Produced in collaboration with students from the Griffith Film School and Pullenvale State School, the four minute clip showcases the difference between integration, perceived inclusion and true inclusion in a classroom environment.

The need for such a video became apparent after school visits, a service DSQ offers to support teaching staff, identified mixed understanding in the education community as to what inclusion looks like, feels like and is.

Inclusion is a mindset, a cultural shift where students are welcomed into a classroom not because it is the ‘right thing to do’ but because it is their human right and because they can and will learn with their age-appropriate peers. 

You can read more about the making of the video at Source Kids website.
