This study examines inclusive education practices for children with disabilities in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) by examining teachers’ attitudes towards inclusion. The study sample consisted of 310 mainstream and special education teachers from all over the UAE. Statistical analyses were used to examine the relationships between predictors. The findings showed that all adult target groups demonstrated positive attitudes towards educational inclusion; however, female teachers had a more positive attitude towards inclusion than male teachers. The results also show that special education teachers had a more positive attitude than mainstream education teachers. There was a relationship between the knowledge, skills and attitudes towards inclusion of regular teachers and special education teachers; all teachers with knowledge, skills and training in special education received high scores for positive attitudes towards inclusion.
