Abstract: The world witnesses a huge movement of change, nowadays, that aims to the reform of the educational systems in both developed and developing countries. A picture of this reform is the inclusion of learners with special educational needs in mainstream schools. The ultimate requirement to achieve such reform is to prepare teachers in mainstream schools to teach learners with special educational needs as most of the teachers, if not all of them, are neither qualified enough to deal with SEN learners, nor equipped with the appropriate tools to teach such learners. The UAE as a model of the developing countries sets an example regarding education system reform. On the other hand, it is taking huge steady steps on the road of inclusion. This research investigates the professional development needs of teachers in middle government schools in the Emirate of Sharjah to become inclusive.
