289

Abstract

The article is devoted to the discussion of the results of a survey of parents of children with disabilities conducted by the “All-Russian Organization of Parents of Disabled Children and Disabled People over 18 Years of Age with Mental and Other Disabilities Who Need Representation of Their Interests” (VORDI). The authors discuss the problems that parents say — home education, lack of psychological and pedagogical assistance and special conditions at school, disagreement with the opinion of the psychological, medical and pedagogical commission. The key problem of the education system, in the opinion of the respondents and the authors of the article, is the absence or lack of training of teaching staff who could work in an inclusive education with students with special educational needs. The position is expressed about the need for systematic development of inclusive education resources, and above all human resources. The creation of regional resource centers for the development of inclusive education in the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, providing for retraining and advanced training of teachers, their methodological support, is seen as a priority direction of the state policy in the field of education.
