Abstract

The purpose of education is the change anticipated in a person (or group of people) which is implemented by the use of specially planned educational actions, under the influence of activity. This justification becomes more sensitive when children with special educational needs, especially those with mental retardation find themselves in the new educational environment - in an inclusive school.

This literature review paper aims to describe the issues of education in children with mental retardation in schools providing inclusive education.

The study was conducted using literature on theoretical analytical methods.

The results of the study showed the educational work for mentally retarded children in inclusive schools can be implemented if an optimal educational environment is created, training for educators is held and a strong educational system is created.
