These guidelines take a holistic view of the educational needs of disabled children by examining the environment in which all children learn. The central message is that mainstream learning environments can include children who may have particular learning needs due to developmental delay or impairment. Inclusive education involves child-centred (rather than curriculum-centred) learning approaches.
