Hi,
as your page is dealing with diversity/ability-topics, we would love to inform you about or contest on the topic of inclusion.
We are trying to build an international database and discussion plattform for the various definitions of inclusion/inclusive education.
You can find more information at: http://www.definitely-inclusive.org/
We would be pleased if you would link definitely-inclusive.org on your web site, either by writing a post or using one of our banners:

Best regards and thank you for your support
