The Inclusive Education Policy defines the strategic path of the government for the education of all children with special educational needs. This policy builds upon sections in the 1992 Constitution, the National Development Agenda, the Education Strategic Plan and International Commitments to achieve national as well as international goals for creating an environment for addressing the diverse educational needs of Ghanaians. 

This policy is the outcome of a series of discussions and consultations between numerous stakeholders in the education sector. The contribution of state actors particularly the Ministry of Education, the Ghana Education Service, the Ministry of Health, the National Council for Persons with Disability and the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social protection are acknowledged.
