Loneliness is a feeling of emptiness that arises when our social needs aren't met by our current relationships. While everyone experiences loneliness at some point in their lives, certain groups may be more vulnerable to feelings of loneliness. It was previously believed that Autistic individuals preferred to be alone, but recent understanding has shifted.

Schools are more than just institutions of education; they are powerful ecosystems designed to provide a nurturing environment for every student to grow and thrive.

Educators, families and the wider community should work together to ensure that a students' educational journey is not only enriching but also inclusive.
