These policy guidelines were developed in response to the belief, now enshrined in New Brunswick legislation, that all children should have the same access to education programs and services. This has seen a move from segregated self-contained classes and schools to the inclusion of children with special needs in mainstream classes. A key feature is that each child with special needs is provided with an individual education plan. (Note: 'Integration' in the context of these guidelines means 'Inclusion'.)
