A stage play about the experience of children with learning disabilities in Scottish schools is set to hit theatres this autumn. IncludED is a new play launching in October that sheds light on issues of exclusion in mainstream schools for children with learning disabilities.
It follows the story of two mothers fighting for their children to have the same opportunities at school as other young people regardless of their learning impairments.
The two women are very different but their lives become intertwined as they campaign tirelessly for their kids. The play affects positive change by bringing together professionals from creative industries and is produced by the charity Creative Change Scotland with support from charity Enable Scotland.
The play was named after the IncludED in the Main campaign launched by Enable Scotland, which lists 22 recommendations for schools, the Scottish Government, councils, and Education Scotland to encourage inclusion for youngsters with learning disabilities.
