Childhood Education, v83 n6 p361 Aug 2007
The European Agency for Development in Special Needs Education is an independent, self-governing organization established in 1996 by member countries to act as a platform for collaboration in the field of special needs education among the 28 member and observer countries. The Agency's ultimate aim is to improve policy and practice for learners with special needs across Europe through debates on inclusive education, equal opportunities, accessibility, and the promotion of quality of education, while recognizing the differences of countries' policies, practices, and educational contexts. The year 2006 marked the 10th anniversary of the Agency. This article aims to present reflections on some of the main developments in the field of inclusion over that period, as reflected in the work of the Agency and its member countries.
