There is a tendency to expand inclusive approach in education, which expects that each of the students will be categorize into the ordinary class. Therefore it should dominate supportive and stimulating environment for teachers and students in the school with inclusive approach. It is necessary to work on removing barriers of education and on participation of children, rather than indentifying specific needs of students, which could result later on in segregation of students. Inclusive approach should not divide among the students with special educational needs and those without them. Heterogeneous groups are taken for granted as well as individualized approach to each student, therefore in one class should be educated together children with disabilities, either mentally or physically, over-gifted students, children of foreigners, another ethnic group, etc.
