There are numer­ous pieces of legislation in place that promote de-institutionalization programs and accelerate progress of inclusive education practices in Armenia; but there are still challengesat the societal and educational levels, in ensuring that children feel included and successfully educated along­side their peers. Legislative educa­tion reforms often take a long time to imple­ment and require continuous monitoring and accountability procedures to succeed.

In line with government priorities for teach­er education, in 2015 UNICEF Armenia facilitated a collabora­tion between University of Minnesota and Armenian State Pedagogical University (ASPU) to develop this textbook as an information and teaching re­source for academics, pre- and in-service general and special education teachers, spe­cialists in inclusive and special education, and administrators.

Through comparative analysis, the textbook offers a wide spectrum of tools, methodologies, and practical evi­dence-based strategies that have been tested, evaluated, and demonstrated to be effective for all children, including children with disabilities, developmental delays, and other special educa­tion needs.
