Abstract. The purpose of the article is to study current trends and ways of improving information support for the functioning of an inclusive education system in Ukraine. The automated system of inclusive resource center (AS «IRC») is defined as a set of software and hardware, based on information and telecommunication technologies provide for the creation of a single integrated information space in inclusive education for the processing of the information generated by the operation of the AS «IRC» and their information support. It is determined that through AS «IRC» teachers of general secondary education institutions and preschool institutions have the opportunity to compile individual development programs for children with special educational needs (SEN), using the findings previously developed by the experts of the inclusive resource centre. EMIS features are described in Ukraine, which operates by collecting information on enrolment, attendance, grade repetition, expulsion from school and graduation. A template is provided for the minimum recommended set of questions to identify children with SEN. Such monitoring makes it possible to identify and detail the difficulties faced by children / teachers, in contrast to the exclusive identification of disability (a certain nosology that is medically confirmed). The development of an inclusive education system in Ukraine is moving towards ensuring the availability and quality of educational services for children with SEN, which aims to improve the quality of information support. In the process of improving the functioning of the AS «IRC» indicators of inclusive education, it is necessary to ensure an organic combination of data already contained in the system with the data set (indicators) that will be collected to assess the effectiveness of educational services in the inclusive education segment. It is substantiated that data sets on the development of inclusive education should be clearly and consistently defined, and should include a wide range of information on children with SEN.
