Education is probably one of the most fraught and debated issues in the disability sector.  From mainstreaming to special needs, inclusion to specialist services, there seems to be little agreement about the “right way” to ensure that, no matter their age, disabled learners get access to educational opportunities that suit their circumstances.

Perhaps the diverse nature of both learning and disability is what creates the complexity around resourcing teachers, schools and other organisations to deliver education to meet a range of needs.  If so, it could be that we need to keep the dialogue alive and dynamic in order to explore, make mistakes and learn what does and doesn’t work, rather than try and find the “right answers”.

Special Education in New Zealand is directed by policy set down by the Ministry of Education.
