The expectations of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) as a tool for participation and equal opportunities for all have been highly valued within the European community. For children and young persons with disabilities the expecations have been of special importance as they have found their opportunities for inclusion on the agenda. Inclusion is not only a physical placement. Inclusion means to be part of, to share, to communicate and to be someone to count with. The aim of the article is to stress research on inclusion of children and highlight how ICT has been and still is used in the schools to enhance participation and equal opportunities for all. Our intention is to stress challenging research results and we ask 'how many positive results on inclusion do we need to make changes?' and 'where are all the progressive decision-makers who will implement the research results?'.
