Date: Thursday 17 June 17 2021.
Time: 1:15-2:30pm Eastern Time (US and Canada)/6:15pm-7:30pm BST.
This free online event aims to discuss how development and humanitarian actors are trying to address the existing gaps in inclusive education for boys and girls with disabilities, which have been worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic, and work on ways to improve education access to these children. The speakers will present approaches that can help fill in existing knowledge gaps on the learning of boys and girls with disabilities, their learning environment, and how it meets their needs. Evidence and case studies, that concern the programming on education and how disability inclusion has been embedded in both design and implementation, will also be talked about.
The event will be available in Arabic, English, French, and Spanish, with closed captions and ASL interpretation provided.
