This important book discusses the principles and practice of moving from segregated education to integration and then inclusion in the context of educating children with disabilities in present day India. The actions to be taken are examined at two levels: the level of the system and that of the school. The contributors accordingly discuss a number of important issues including legislative measures, administrative and financial support, equality of opportunities, teacher training, classroom organisation, curriculum modification and parental involvement. Examples of inclusive schooling at work are also provided.
