Learning with disabilities

OECD-JRC. Students with Disabilities, Learning Difficulties and Disadvantages in the Baltic States, South Eastern Europe and Malta. Educational Policies and Indicators. OECD Publishing, 2009. ISBN: 9789264075825. Pages: 190.    

This book provides an internationally comparable set of indicators on the educational provision for students with disabilities, learning difficulties and disadvantages. It covers the number of students concerned, their learning environment (special schools, special classes and regular classes) and level of education (pre-primary, compulsory and upper secondary education). It also discusses policy implications in relation to special education needs and offers an analysis of the participation and performance of students with special education needs in the 2006 round of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA).

The study provides policy makers in the field of special needs education with the opportunity to engage in the ongoing construction of new knowledge, on the diversity of students with learning difficulties.
