Costing inclusive education of children with disabilities: ​ ​ Analysis of expenditures of an inclusive education programme in Senegal​

The study sought to identify the incremental expenditure of including children with disabilities in mainstream public primary schools in Senegal, West Africa, collecting from schools in suburban districts of Senegal capital, Dakar, where a total of 187 children with disabilities - primarily blind or had severe low vision, were enrolled in general education primary schools. The expenditure analysis was conducted retrospectively using accounting systems of the partners involved in the pilot. The analysis was incremental, so that only expenditures that were directly related to the Inclusive education intervention were included.
