Efforts to advance educational inclusion for children with disabilities must be sustained and accelerated in the years to come if equity for this group, and universal education in general, is to be achieved. This includes addressing remaining gaps in provision, including the shortage of trained teachers, locally-adapted pedagogies, and essential data to monitor progress and gaps for children with disabilities. This chapter addresses the challenges associated with increasing access to primary education for children with disabilities and describes what is being done internationally to address these challenges. In particular, the chapter looks at programs to promote equity and the challenges that remain in implementing such programs. Examples are given from countries with disability programs that are receiving support through the Education for All – Fast Track Initiative (FTI).
