Main Article Content



Persons with disabilities have rights, duties, and obligations. Their development and training will depend on the extent to which society provides alternatives for recognition and protection at all levels. The objective was to identify the progress of scientific publications about the research topic. Bibliometric analysis was applied to identify the research trend and the literature review method was used. It was concluded that the promotion of inclusive education, the adaptation of educational services, and citizenship education are the main focus of future research.
