Hi, This may be some help to you.
1.2 The individual being discriminated against may: be excluded from or miss opportunities and not fulfil their potential, be excluded from certain roles, commit self-harm, have low self-wroth, a confused identity, fear of rejection, have low self-esteem and dampen their motivation to learn. This all means they donít reach their full potential and are unable to give their full contribution to society as an adult. Those who inflict discrimination are also harmed as their prejudice makes them believe some people are inferior to them, giving them a distorted view on the world. The families and friends of individuals who are discriminated against can be affected in many ways. Some may be emotionally hurt and have their own feelings of self-worth challenged, if the discrimination has been violent they may feel scared. Some may react violently in return and grow their own prejudiceís towards people they view as being like the original attacker.
1.3 Inclusion as defined by the Early Childhood Forum means a process of identifying, understanding and breaking down barriers to participation and belonging. Inclusive practice promotes equality and supports diversity by requiring us to see the barriers to families at a setting and work towards breaking them down. Families who feel welcome and accepted are more likely to join a setting and therefore open up equal opportunities to their children and promote positive attitudes to diversity.
