Special education in Europe

Seamus Hegarty


The current state of special education in Europe must take account of two central developments: changes in the conceptual landscape of special education, and the emergence of national educational reform movements, and their dominance in framing educational debate. Besides to these developments, this article also focuses on four particular topics relating to special education in Europe, namely legislation and its impact on changes in special education; integration of children with special education needs into mainstream education; the emerging role of the special school; and research in special education.
