    experiencing a sense of belonging; feeling that persons other than family and professionals care for, value, and desire to spend time with us; knowing that support will be available if it is needed; and having regular access to the community and those within it with whom we desire to associate. It is the feeling of being a contributing part of a network of persons whom we know, who know us, and who know each other. A sense of social inclusion is most likely to be achieved when we are able to develop and maintain a set of reciprocal social relationships based upon trust and mutual caring that transcend specific settings or contexts. These associations have an impact on how we view ourselves and our world, and meet a myriad of personal needs. They are crucial for the successful community adjustment of persons with as well as without disabilities.
