Inclusive schools seek to provide the best answer to diversity and this involves identifying and removing obstacles or barriers that prevent the inclusion process. It requires continuous attention to the school context, especially to the permanent dialogue and interaction between that context and the diversity of students. Accessibility, in its different dimensions, physical, sensory, cognitive and emotional, which we will achieve by implementing the principles of universal design, will contribute to the presence, participation and learning of all students.
