The field of education for children with a disability has extended its reach in the
preceding years to become more inclusive. The concept of inclusion has its dynamics and demands. It embraces both the special educator and the regular
educator. It also makes demands on the community and systems in place. It is to explore this space and the changes that need to be wrought and
strengthened that the 85th conference of NCED-India has been conceived. The
