My son has struggled with inclusion his whole school career thus far. He’s in 8th grade and JUST NOW finding a place that he can be himself and feel included in almost all of his classes and groups. However, from Kindergarten to 6th grade it was a NIGHTMARE. Schools would bully and isolate him. He would be kicked out of classes over the smallest things (to include using the bathroom too long). I would get harassing phone calls from the principle himself because my son missed too many days at school despite the reason being for mental/physical health appointments- all of which was arranged AND approved by the very same principle in the beginning of the school year. It has been a rough ride. I know not everywhere is like that but the school system has been one of the worst places my family has had to deal with to fight for inclusion.
