Raising Confidence in Students in the School Enviroment WHY STUDENTS WITH MILD PHYSICAL AND INTellectual DISABILITIES SHOULD BE INTEGRATED with peers

When a student feels accepted in his or her surroundings, that student is more likely to maintain a stable and a healthy outlook on school.

A student that is excluded from his or her peers is likely to suffer from feelings of loneliness and inferiority; however, inclusion can allow the student to gain stronger social interaction skills and valuable friendships.

Making others aware of their self-worth, value and cherished uniqueness is vital in guiding others toward gaining confidence in their own abilities.

School administration can work to expand the availability of extracurricular activities for students with mild disabilities, and provide special learning accommodations for students to excel in the classroom.

Inclusion supports students in developing personal goals and the confidence to pursue future success in their given field after high school, whether it be college or in the workplace.

Every student deserves the same rights of equality and opportunity, as we are all capable of accomplishing our dreams and each of us is special in our own unique way.
