AbstractThis chapter will explore the impact of the cultural frameworks of the society on the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) provision in different countries around the world. The influences of cultural dynamics /frameworks on the conceptualization and attitudes towards SEND and provision of services available will be illustrated. The impact of global and local cultures, values, traditions and beliefs affecting the attitudes on the identification and accessing provision for SEND in different countries will be objectively presented. Challenges and tensions around the conflicting policies imposed by the Global North countries on Global South countries and its implications on the provision will be analysed.
