Orientation and goals

The career field for special needs teachers is shaped by diverse traditional and new educational opportunities for children, youths, and adults with various, and sometimes multiple, disabilities and risk factors. Special needs education is first and foremost a specialised pedagogical field and a necessary professional qualification that is tailored to address the needs of people with disabilities or who are subject to risk factors. The most important thinking that underpins the professionalisation of this field can be found in the philosophy of educational inclusion.
