dc.description.abstract The study emanates from the social worker’s intervention as facilitator for learners with disabilities in inclusive education. The aim of the study was to explore and explain the role of the social worker as facilitator in inclusive education. When learners with disabilities are placed in mainstream schools, there should be some means whereby the mainstream school system provides specialised support for their needs. An exploratory research design together with a qualitative research approach was chosen in order to obtain knowledge, insight and understanding regarding the role of the social worker as facilitator for learners with disabilities in inclusive education. A literature review was conducted to obtain a perspective of research done in this field. Much research has been documented regarding inclusive education. However no research has been done regarding the role of the social worker as facilitator for learners with disabilities in inclusive education. The empirical investigation consisted of case studies of two boys during middle childhood that were included in inclusive schools with the help of a facilitator. The findings of the investigation were in line with what was found in the literature study, namely that learners with disabilities can function successfully in inclusive schools with the help of a facilitator. Throughout the discussion it seemed clear that the social worker does not need new skills to be able to facilitate learners with disabilities in inclusive schools. The social worker can draw on already existing skills as discussed in the study. en_ZA
