The training of Special education teachers have been given attention by the Ministry of Education, Malaysia. Since 1996 Special education was given the same priority as other areas in the development of education in Malaysia. In order to implement effective teaching and learning in inclusive program, teachers should be prepared and understand about the program. Therefore, this study is aimed to investigate the knowledge and attitude of special education student teachers to teach in inclusive education programs. This study used questionnaires as an instrument and a sample of 80 trainees from Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris. The design of this study was descriptive by using Likert Scale which is tabulated in percentage, frequency and mean score. Based on the data analysis, it is found that the percentage and the readiness of special education trainees are at a high level. However, innovation in teaching and practical training still need to be provided sufficiently in order to provide an opportunity for trainees to get hands on experience.
