The increase in the number of pupils with disabilities (+10 thousand) in the Italian schools (3.3% of the total) is confirmed.

Poor accessibility for students with motor disabilities; inclusion is insured by only 34% of schools. Aid for students with sensorial disability (2% of school) is quite critical. Only in 15% of school buildings broke down architectural barriers.

The ratio between students and special-need teacher is better than the legal provisions, but specialization is lacking: one teacher out of 3 is not selected from the list of special-need teachers but from the list of general teachers.
