Inclusive Education by DrOmnibus – helping every child on the journey to independence and development
Inclusion involves all aspects of social life. The goal is to make children want to communicate, to see value in communication, and not just verbal communication. You often can only reach full understanding with a child by communicating through images. It’s worth focusing in the beginning on such competencies as independence and communication through fun and leisure planning or establishing social contacts.
