"Inclusion in education is crucial as it ensures that all students, regardless of their abilities or differences, can learn and thrive in a supportive environment. It promotes diversity, fosters a sense of belonging, and prepares students for the real world, where people have varied skills and backgrounds. Inclusive education benefits students with special needs as well as gifted and talented and enhances their overall learning experience. It is more than meeting the needs of exceptional learners; it's about creating an educational landscape that nurtures understanding, cooperation, and a shared commitment to the success of every learner, fostering a more compassionate and harmonious community", - Brenna Weston Bell, the organizer of the conference and the Head of Learning Support at EIS.
