Schools are being challenged to review their organisational structures, the curriculum they teach, and their pedagogical practices to ensure that all students are truly included in the school community. This philosophy of inclusion involves students actively participating with others in learning so that they valued as members of the school community. All students need to have access to a system that delivers a quality education that is best suited to their unique competencies, skills, and attributes (Ainscow, 2000; Farrell, 2000; Fisher, Roach, & Frey, 2002). How will these changes impact special education by the year 2050?

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
