This Key list highlights useful and practical resources on disability and mainstreaming. Thanks largely to advocacy by disabled people, the concept of 'mainstreaming' has entered the development debate and development programmes have started to contain a disability component. Many development workers now talk of a 'twin-track' approach combining inclusive and special services for disabled people, but debates on the subject still continue. For inclusive development to take place, there needs to be awareness and understanding about disability issues among development workers, and a policy framework needs to be in place. This Key list contains manuals for training and awareness-raising on inclusive approaches, as well as policy documents. It also contains resources documenting development programmes' experiences of inclusion
