Role of Governance in Assessing the Needs of Students with Disabilities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

Author(s): Mohamad Ahmad Saleem Khasawneh

Specifically, this article looks at the Saudi Arabian policy planning and implementation in meeting the needs of learning disability. All stages of education for people with disabilities are mandated by law, including pre-school, elementary and secondary school, vocational and postsecondary education, and further education. The Ministry of Education in Saudi Arabia is responsible for overseeing the whole educational system, which includes both elementary and secondary education. Considering how important it is for Saudi Arabian policymakers to achieve the objective of providing high-quality education for individuals and children with disabilities in their decision-making, it is critical to recognize the issue as one of disability. The new special education policy for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia offers clear standards on how to accommodate children and people with disabilities. Saudi Arabia's inclusive education strategy has been influenced by global education policy as well as the international framework for disabled people's rights. Progress in the inclusive process is being stifled by a scarcity of norms, techniques, and resources. People will continue to fall behind in terms of advancement as long as the country remains stagnant in its development.
