Discrimination against a child with special needs makes a child who is very often different to other children; feel even more isolated and different to other children. Very often children with special needs have a very difficult time trying to fit in with other children especially if they are in a mainstream school. All children can be very cruel to another and should be raised to understand that everyone is different Example In our setting we promote inclusion and we treat everyone the same and explain to other children “we are alike but different.”
