The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Royal Government of Cambodia has developed the National Policy on Education for Children with Disabilities. This policy ensures equal rights for children to receive equal education.

This policy supports Child Friendly Schools policy and implementation guidelines implemented by the Ministry. This is to achieve basic education initiatives, and the Education Strategic Plan (ESP), as well as Education For All (EFA) goals by the year 2015.

The policy delineates the roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders, particularly educational institutions, in developing the potential of children with disabilities. In addition, the policy provides appropriate interventions to increase the participation of children with disabilities. So they can become active members of their communities and nation now and in the future.

The Policy contains the rationale for the policy, provides a conceptual framework and describes strategies. The main implementation plan are done specifically for the various stakeholders involved.

This policy identifies and uses existing structures currently viable within Cambodia for successful and sustainable implementation. It also makes recommendations for strengthening structures that would further benefit children with disabilities.
