This chapter principally focuses on Confucianism. It starts by reviewing Confucius’ fundamental perspectives on education and disabilities, and their influence in China and other Chinese societies. It then describes the general basics of the field in terms of definitions, causes, and learning characteristics. The development of educational provision for children with intellectual disabilities in Hong Kong is then examined. Lastly, the chapter discusses the education of these students alongside the education reform in Hong Kong, and the influence of Confucian ideas on Hong Kong’s educational future.
