This article reviews a video, which follows the inclusion of a child with disability in a regular classroom. It examines the benefits to not only the child but the whole class. Less bullying occurred, and students were more supportive of one another, particularly since the student was not 'attached' to an aide. The article ends with some general lessons for inclusion, including that schools should look beyond labels of disability and take guidance from students and parents when it comes to determining a student's individual needs.
