In modern understanding of education of people with special needs, the inclusive education considers being the beneficial way of socialization. With the growing number of children, who are suggested to be educated inclusively, the use of information technologies will enable a new level of support for all participants of such education – the children, their parents, as well as a wide range of specialists who work with people with special needs.

In this paper, we propose the model of information and technological support of inclusive education, built according to the specialty of such process in Ukraine. We present a model of data warehouse, designed to process data of complex psychophysical assessment of persons with special needs. The paper presents the key aspects and main formal criteria of evaluation of effects, caused by the implementation of complex information technology of inclusive educational support. These criteria reflect the impact on social, scientific and technological effects from implementation of information technologies of every stage of inclusive education support.
