Inclusive Education Webinar hosted by: The International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IASSIDD

Over the course of the last decades, several countries around the world have taken serious efforts to make their school systems more inclusive. Fuelled by international policy papers, as the Salamanca Statement (UNCESO 1994) and the activism of the Disabled People’s Movement, governments from all continents

have tried to re-organise structures and practises in the field of education. Signing the UN-Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD, 2006), several states have affirmed the right of all children to education – in an inclusive system. These processes have led to a global progress in expanding access to education (UNESCO 2017). Despite these efforts, many children with disabilities are still refused participation in education or are being schooled in segregated educational settings. The labels intellectual disability and/or developmental disability seem to remain some of the most powerful barriers, disabling children to participate in mainstream school settings.
