Policy provisions for special and inclusive education have been made in Nigeria. For instance, the National Policy on Education, first published in 1981 and revised in 2004, has a section on Special Education with two broad objectives – to give concrete meaning to the idea of equalizing educational opportunities for all children irrespective of their disabilities and to provide adequate education for all children and adults with special needs in order that they may fully play their roles in the development of the nation [10].
