Abstract

Persons with disabilities are regarded as one of the most socially excluded groups in all societies today. Many policies and Programmes have been formulated for their advantage and more so, in the field of education, disability studies been introduced. Though disability studies in education has recently been formally recognized, but it started when the educators have resisted and spoken against the hegemony of special education, institutionalization, sheltered workshops, and social exclusion. Disability studies in education also depend on the social theories which influence disability to a large extent. Now, scholars in the humanities also have been influential. Today, educators around the globe are coming up with new ways of thinking about disability and educational research, policy, and practice. Yet, a little has been done in this regard.
