EDUCATION FOR ALL: DISABILITY, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

October 16 2017
University of Cape Town

Have you or a family member ever been excluded from any learning, social, or other activity - at work, at school or socially? You may remember how painful this experience was. Millions of children around the world are excluded from access to education because of a disability - their exclusion robs them of their potential and diminishes our society. This course aims to help teachers, other professionals and parents to tackle inclusion, in a practical way, in their own environment. Over six weeks, we will look at the background of disability and strategies for creating an enabling environment in the school and community.
Course outline:
● Week 1 - Why inclusion?
● Week 2 - Education begins at home
● Week 3 - Creating an inclusive school
● Week 4 - Partnerships for success
● Week 5 - Changing classroom practices
● Week 6 - Building networks
