INCLUSION FOR CHILDREN

Research shows children acquire their society's prejudices by around age 3 - this means as parents it's never too early to engage our children on ideas of fairness, justice, respect and diversity.

Inclusion at school is of utmost importance, but even before that, parents can expose their children to a variety of dolls, games, books, films and programs to make sure diversity is present in their development. 

They can also discuss disability in a matter of fact way, let them ask questions and give them straight, natural answers. Invite their friends with disabilities to play dates, birthday parties, pajama parties. Don't be afraid to ask. They will take the example from you.
