Education transition for children with disabilities in Armenia. Research report.
Bridge of Hope, Armenia, 2015
This report documents information collected through focus group discussions among teachers, parents and children/youth with disabilities and interviews with education experts and policy-makers. The information focuses on policies and practices around transition from one level of education to another for children with disabilities and special educational needs. Recommendations are made for Armenia, but will have relevance to many other countries. As part of the same project, a summary advocacy poster around inclusive transition will be available in early 2016. Available online at: http://bit.ly/eer4-pub1.

Inclusive Education Video Catalogue: Using videos effectively
In 2014 EENET compiled a catalogue of videos about inclusive education from diverse sources.

This guide encourages and helps facilitators to use videos more actively as a stimulus for reflection and debate. Available online at: http://bit.ly/eer4-pub7. Contact EENET for printed copies.
