Abstract

Like the attempt to provide education to exceptional learners in countries both rich and poor throughout the world, this chapter is fraught with many challenges. Whereas the preceding 56 chapters of this volume have addressed myriad aspects of special education predominantly in the United States, we have about 40 manuscript pages to cover the rest of the world, a charge usually addressed by whole books describing or comparing practices across several countries. Insufficient resources for the task—possibly the one characteristic of educational provision for students with disabilities that is universal across the globe—is not our only challenge, however.
