Legal Framework and Developments

Society's view of people with disabilities and their participation in life has changed fundamentally and is in constant flux.

Disability is seen as a human rights issue. The disability is not inherent in the nature of a human being but it is the barriers in society and in the environment that restrict equal participation.

Access to education is a central part of inclusion. Legislation in recent years has strengthened the rights to participation and inclusion of people with special needs.

Various laws reflect the development and enshrine the related demands and claims.
