The equality of the right to education for children with special needs has been clearly stated in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disability (UNCRPD) in 2006. The convention clearly states that inclusive education is a system used for providing opportunities for all persons with disabilities or children with special needs to have equal opportunities in obtaining education. It brings a major change in the educational paradigm for children with special needs originally oriented towards special education organized by Special School transformed into inclusive education at regular schools.
Globally, studies and research have been undertaken to develop theories and practices of special education and inclusive education. However, differences in cultural backgrounds, settings, scientific and technological gaps give impact on the emergence of various problems in the practice of special education and inclusive education in various countries. Based on the background of the situation, it takes a forum that is able to explore and publish various studies and research results so as to provide alternatives and solutions to problems arising good for the policymakers, practitioners, academics and the public at large.
International Conference on Special and Inclusive Education (ICSIE) 2018 is a conference aimed at providing a forum for academics, researchers, professionals from various fields to exchange ideas, communicate and discuss about the latest developments in the field of education for children with special needs. This international conference will invite experts, researchers, academics, practitioners, and the general public in the field of education as well as other areas related to services for children with special needs. This conference is expected to be useful in contributing to the development of education for children with special needs both in special education and inclusion settings
