Samenvatting

Aim: Although children with disabilities have the right to be included into the school system, children with Profound Intellectual and Multiple Disabilities (PIMD) are often not included. The aim of this study is to gather knowledge about inclusive education for children with PIMD by identifying factors that contribute to success or failure of inclusive education for children with PIMD. Method: Semi-structured interviews were undertaken with parents, health care professionals and teachers involved in the different support and educational
systems related to children with PIMD. Interviews were transcribed and analyzed
thematically. Results: Data collection is ongoing. The presentation will give an overview of the themes concerning factors that contribute to the success or failure of the inclusion in education of children with PIMD. Conclusion: The knowledge we gain from this study helps to improve projects aimed at the inclusion of children with PIMD and will help to improve the accessibility of education for children with PIMD.
