Aside from building positive relationships with and for children, Connolly et al. (2002) highlights the importance of working in partnership with families and the wider community in order to cover a broader range of inclusion. There is a wealth of evidence to support the claim that children do better when there is close partnership between home and early years setting (.

Mainstreaming children with special needs education has a positive impact on both social and academic learning for children with and without special needs (Farrell 2000).

Education is an international human right essential to the life of an individual and to a community, as it is believed that if children receive basic primary education, they will likely be literate and will have the basic social and life skills necessary to secure a job, to be an active member of a peaceful community, and to have a fulfilling life.

Another benefit of group counseling is that children learn to cope with their disabilities and the limitation that accompany it. There has also been a push within the school to integrate students with disabilities into the general population, hence it’s necessary to help them become adjusted to their environment. Adolescence is a critical time within children social lives, according to Givon and Court (2003). It is suggested that the earlier intervention will become well- adjusted and socially competent individuals.
They reflected and critique, but with intentions of learning and acquiring the best possible solutions of ensuring equity in service support and inclusion of all children. Brabeck, (2003) proposes that it’s from such ways that professionals learn to work together to meet the needs of children and youth, when they are drawn into partnership and effective communication among themselves. Therefore, in the context of reflection, the present study illuminates that critical reflection is part of interprofessional collaboration, it requires strong values of being interprofessional with strong commitments, time, trust and openness to address complex issues that may affect the main goal of providing equity services in an inclusive school.

The younger generation ought to have the best foundation in their early years’ experience in order to prepare them for the challenges they will face when they grow up. Therefore, the quality of early year’s education has a significant impact on children’s development. Who can influence the quality of the early years setting? Leader plays a vital role in establishing a positive relationship and team culture among staff in order to provide a meaningful learning environment for children. There is a large volume of published studies describing that an effective leader is essential to the high quality of early years setting (Lewis and Hill, 2012).

Attachment theory, as first described by Bowlby (1962), is a dyadic relationship between the child and his caregiver that impacts how the child learns to navigate his environment, establish interpersonal relations, and develop a sense of personal worth.
