Everyone can't be equally included in everything

Take for example someone without autism. They don't have the the same mental condition that an autistic has. But maybe they think "everyone had their quirks so shouldn't I be allowed to get the same treatment that they have? Shouldn't I be allowed to be a part of a special needs school? Shouldn't I have similar medication for my focus?" The problem is having quirks too doesn't make you autistic. There are probably other examples outside of autism but that's the first thing that comes into my head. The person won't ever benefit from these things because they don't have the same brain condition.

I'm trying to wrap my head around your comments this morning and I think I'm failing without the benefit of coffee.

I have two children, the first is my daughter who is Autistic, the second is my son who is not. He would not benefit from being included in her classes simply because they do things at a different pace. My daughter has extra classes because she knows more than those who are in regular classes as well. He does however go with us when we go to the Childrens museum ever first Wed of the month because they have soft sensory evening, where lights are lowered and sounds are a bit muted and he gains great benefit there.

As to the statement of "everyone can't be equally included in everything, sure I agree with that. There are certain things other people can do that I most assuredly can't. And vice versa. On a selfish level, I don't want to be held back from doing something I'm good at so someone who isn't equal in my abilities can be pandered to, and I don't want to lose the opportunity to learn from others who are better because someone else hasn't the skill.
