CIES 2019 Individual Presentation - Strategies for Moving from Segregated Toward Inclusive Education Systems

This presentation is part of the refereed round-table session, "Innovations in Inclusive Education Policy to Practice: How to Make Inclusive Education a Reality in Low- and Middle-Income Contexts" chaired by Stephen Luke, FHI 360
 
As of October 2018, 177 countries have ratified the CRPD which obligates countries to provide education to children with disabilities in inclusive settings. The reality, however, is that many countries are continuing to educate children with disabilities in segregated settings often citing that they are unsure how to responsibility transition towards more inclusive systems. This panel session will offer strategies that governments, donors and implementers can take to move towards an inclusive education system. Using information and recommendations included within the USAID Toolkit on Universal Design for Learning to Help All Children Read: Promoting Literacy for Learners with Disabilities, the presentation will provide concrete steps for using situational analyses that compare current country programs and practices on inclusive education with the CRPD and international best practices. Results from these analyses can then inform and support prioritization of activities within inclusive education strategic plans. Presented information will include a phased approach on how to build educational systems which include foundational, differentiated and institutionalized supports.
