Inclusion is meant to address the needs of all students, including those who are particularly gifted or talented.
Gifted students fall into two categories: high-performing individuals, and pupils who possess both gifted abilities and learning disabilities/other conditions (Autism, ADHD, etc.).
The first group is usually excluded and undermined, while the latter is statemented and assisted by a Learning Support Educator. Both groups are stigmatised and are, therefore, in need of assistance. Furthermore, they deserve an opportunity to participate in enrichment or acceleration programmes to reach their full potential.
The LSE needs to identify gifted learners, assist them in developing their capabilities and promote a culture of inclusion in the classroom.
