Inclusive Education (IE) is a new approach towards educating the children with disability
and learning difficulties with that of normal ones within the same roof. It brings all
students together in one classroom and community, regardless of their strengths or
weaknesses in any area, and seeks to maximize the potential of all students. It is one of
the most effective ways in which to promote an inclusive and tolerant society. It is
known that 73 million children of primary school age were out of school in 2010, down
from a high of over 110 million out-of-school children in the mid-1990s, according to
new estimates by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS). About Eighty percent of
Somalian population lives in rural areas without provision for special schools. It means,
there are an estimated 8 million children out of school in Somalia (MHRD 2009
statistics), many of whom are marginalised by dimensions such as poverty, gender,
disability, and caste. The university management should come up with a strategic policy
that will ensure the provision of all resources/facilities, employ more resource room
personnel and have different resource rooms to cater for each group of SSN, university
management should provide training for the lecturers to improve their knowledge and
skills in teaching students with special needs through workshops and seminars and
inter-departmental approaches, The university management should have a strategic
plan for continuous maintenance and increase of all the physical accessibilities to the
facilities, transportation and accommodation and the university management should
provide awareness of their students with special needs through seminars/ workshops,
creating a university common course on inclusive education and increase programmes
on disability sensitization so as to enhance inclusivity for all persons in the university
