The inclusive type of education allows teaching children with disabilities not in a specialized facility but in a (mainstream) ordinary school. A child with disabilities studying at an institution for the d- isabled people is usually segregated from the real society, the factor that even more limits his development. Such a child, like any other child, is in need of proper teaching, education, upbringing and communication with peers. While Inclusive Education allows children with disabilities to go to mainstream schools and to learn with other children.
Besides, the other healthy children attending an inclusive education class, acquire more skills and attitudes of more sympathy, mutuality and understanding (as psychologists call it ‘empathy’), thus they grow more sociable and tolerant, which is especially important for the social environments with a very low level of tolerance. The Inclusive Education drastically reduces the unhealthy hierarchical interactions in the educational team.
