Abstract:During the past 20 years, the Russian government and culture at large has increased its awareness of integrative and inclusive educational practices for children with disabilities. However, educational reformers cite the need for the implementation of these practices on public school campuses. In response to the dearth of legislative action in implementing integrative and inclusive practices, parents of children with disabilities, in conjunction with community organizations, have become strong advocates for the rights of their children to attend integrated and inclusive school settings. This paper presents the current changes in Russia’s education system for students with disabilities as the country moves toward integrative and inclusive practices.
