The event was organized by the Education Development Center in cooperation with the Department of Education and Comprehensive Education at the Ministry of Science and Higher Education.

The two-day conference is devoted to discussing advanced legal and financial solutions based on the Education for All model.

During the event, MEiN Foreign Minister Marzena Machałek said the Ministry of Education and Science is working on a law to support children, students and families, as changes are planned to improve the quality of inclusive education in Poland.

I would like the discussion during this conference to be fruitful. I expect your substantial support in the ministry’s activities. It is difficult to find a golden way that arranges all these provisions, directs funds well, assesses the situation well, and on the other hand, will not lose what has already been achieved – said Deputy Minister Merzina Mashagic during the conference.

  • Introducing a new Early Childhood Development and Family Support (WWR) model, which will integrate existing solutions offered to children from birth to the start of school, offered in various sectors,
  • Changing the way the needs of children and students are assessed, planning, provision and evaluation of the effectiveness of the support provided using functional assessment and the method of financing tasks in this area – implementation of the biopsychosocial approach and the use of the International Classification of Disability and Health Performance (ICF),
  • Employment criteria for specialized teachers in kindergarten and regular schools, including public schools with integration and integration classes,
  • Organizing the possibility of private schools and institutions taking on a new role and tasks in supporting kindergartens, main and integrated schools (specialized centers for the support of inclusive education – SCWEW),
