In Northern Ireland, three decades ago, the Education and Libraries (NI) Order 1986 has been declared the inclusion policy for special education. However, there has been needed much efforts to translate this policy into practice and substantiate such inclusion practice in Northern Ireland. The Northern Ireland definition of inclusion is offered. Northern Ireland inclusion policy and its current version of translated practice have been outlined. Seven pillars of inclusion practice have been described. Discussion of Northern Ireland inclusion policy has been explained. A number of inclusion practice programs have been suggested.
