Special education guarantees the education and development of competencies in children and young people with unique needs. Special Education emphasises education accessible to everyone, as well as academic, familial, and social inclusion of those with special needs in order to eliminate barriers in learning and participation and for their integration into society.
This inclusion assures that those who would otherwise be excluded have the opportunities and resources necessary to participate in social and cultural life. It ensures the right to live a life as an active member of a community. In this way, by choosing to include and socially integrate children and young people that have a disability, Special Education is necessary for their full development and transformation into independent adults who are self-sufficient and included in society.
