"Special education needs to be reconceptualised as a support to the regular education classroom, rather than as 'another place to go'". This article says mainstreaming means you are a visitor and inclusion makes you part of the family. It looks at the fundamental values of children being part of the neighbourhood school, such as overcoming isolation and loneliness, and uses the Judith Snow quote; "the only disability is having no relationships". It provides some basic guidelines on inclusive schooling and discusses the need for administrative commitment. Keywords: Education, School age
