Transforming Education Pre-Summit Side Session - DOES ALL MEAN ALL? Ensuring the Participation of Learners with Disabilities in Inclusive, Quality, Equitable Education

DATE: 29 June 2022 | TIME: 9:00-9:45

Location: Action Track 1 Village, UNESCO, Paris

As the global community attempts to transform education, will children and adolescents with disabilities be included or left further behind? While learners with disabilities were already disproportionately excluded from school and learning opportunities, the COVID-19 pandemic amplified inequalities for children and adolescents with disabilities, while also creating opportunities to reinvent how a truly inclusive education system can be realized. 

This session will demonstrate how to ensure the participation of learners with disabilities while improving the quality of education for all by:

  • reviewing commitments and progress so far towards inclusive education for all learners, including all learners with disabilities;
  • highlighting how a twin-track approach – addressing systemic change while addressing individual needs;
  • utilizing Universal Design for Learning – which ensures that all learners benefit from the curriculum, can ensure the participation of learners with disabilities while improving the quality of education for all;
  • building capacity of government personnel;
  • engaging itinerant teachers who provide support in mainstream schools.
