The paper highlighted the education of students with special needs from special schools to mainstreaming programmes, classification of exceptionalities found in children; benefits of mainstreaming, the challenges facing mainstreaming; and the lessons for 21st century. The study concluded that students with special needs were yet to be integrated with regular students in public schools in Nigeria and this could affect their self perception and academic performance.
