Integration is a necessary pre-condition for inclusion but is not a solution.

This is one of the key messages which came out from the National Consultation on Inclusive Education organized jointly by Directorate General of Special Education (DGSE), Ministry of Social Welfare and Special Education, Sightsavers International (SSI) and International Council for Education of People with Visual Impairment (ICEVI). The consultation took place on March 27-28, 2006 in Islamabad, Pakistan.

The speakers included persons with disabilities, professionals, policy makers, administrators, academics, and representatives of international organizations.
