Most of the world's nations want to integrate children with special educational needs into mainstream schools. This publication recounts the progress made in including these pupils in regular schools, and provides examples of successful integration of special and inclusive education. Integration can only be effective if governments, schools and teachers modify policies, practices and attitudes. All children must have access to buildings and curriculum alike, and extra funding normally earmarked for special needs should not bar access to regular schools. Providing access also means that personnel accept that they are responsible for all children and that pedagogy is adapted to children's needs. Teachers must therefore be supported by their professional environment and work with the range of external services which form such an essential part of the lives of these students. Governments, too, must play their role. Policy agendas and long term active support for changes must be in place to positively affect the lives and employment prospects of children with special educational needs.
