Inclusion and mainstreaming are two terms often used interchangeably, but they are two different approaches to educating your child with autism. This article discusses the differences between including and mainstreaming children with autism in the education system in the Philippines. With mainstreaming, children have the opportunity to participate in some of the neuro-typical classroom activities and academics.

Some children on the spectrum work well in this atmosphere because there are certain subjects in which they excel. Inclusion is a “process of addressing and responding to the diversity of needs of ALL learners … involving changes and modifications in content, approaches, structures and strategies, with a common vision … and conviction that it is the responsibility of the regular system to educate ALL children (UNESCO, 2003).” The article goes on to state that it is important for schools remember their job is to work with all children regardless of ability.
