Education and learning are core activities of museums and a growing emphasis is being placed on effective educational programming, tailored to the particular requirements of disabled museum learners. Museums strive to provide inclusive educational activities which engage museum learners, with and without disabilities, by incorporating multi-modal approaches. In 2009, on behalf of the Slovenian Museums Association, a national survey of educational provision for disabled users of Slovenian museums and galleries was conducted. The survey addressed educational programming and teaching methods for visitors with physical, sensory, speech and language impairments, visitors with learning difficulties, visitors with mental health, emotional and behavioural difficulties, visitors with long-term illness, and those with multiple impairments. The findings of the research emphasize the importance of visitor-focused educational programming, along with the need for development of museum profession in the field of learning and education.
