In many countries, disability specific education for children and youth with disabilities continues to be provided in disability specific education facilities or settings. The disability specific education facilities and approaches continue to play a valuable role in many countries. However as governments progressively move toward the implementation of national and international commitments for the realisation of Education for All, evidence suggests this cannot be achieved by specialist education facilities alone.
Resources below provide a specific focus on the role of disability specific education, analysis of quality systems, resources, and guidance on the strengths and challenges of disability specific education and the collaboration between different approaches to ensure the realisation of the right to education for all children.
