Special Education / Inclusion

Special Education in the UAE is defined as educational programs and practices designed for students with disabilities or Gifted and Talented students, whose mental ability, physical ability, emotional functioning, etc. requires special teaching approaches, equipment, or instruction within or outside of a regular classroom.

The term inclusion is used to refer to the education of students with special needs in a regular classroom with their same-age peers who do not have learning difficulties.
