What is Inclusive programs for youth with special needs
A special need is any difficulty that causes someone to need extra support to succeed. These difficulties can be physical, emotional, behavioral or learning-related. Young people of different backgrounds and all abilities need the chance to learn together. There is a lot of research about formal inclusive education, but very little specific about non-formal settings.
Inclusive education values everyone’s uniqueness and the diversity that they bring. The goal is that every child feels a sense of belonging, value and safety. Provide a place for youth to develop relationships, skills and friendships. Inclusive settings are higher quality and fosters empathy. Youth need to socialize, play and learn together to develop understanding and respect. An inclusive youth program can lead to more inclusive community life.
Why it matters
Almost 16 out of every 100 students in youth programs may have a special need. It’s our responsibility to provide an inclusive environment for all to explore their potential, The world of opportunity should not be for just the 84 children.
It is the community’s responsibility to ensure that we do have a program for our youth programs that is open and accommodating to everyone. Every young adult should benefits from these supports. Youth programs are well positioned, in the lake garden area in Seremban which is easily accessible to all. Civitas in partnership with the Play Project Mahavidya will provide an environments that will support all youth to thrive. This is because we offer them chance to connect and learn together outside of school.
