Ever since families first came together in the field of intellectual disability to share their experiences with each other and campaign for better support, education for children has always been a top priority. Today, education systems are large and complex, requiring national family associations and their local partners to navigate systems not built with an inclusive education lens in mind.
Family associations around the world continue to work to advance inclusive education at the local and national level. Over the last year, Inclusive Education Canada Director Gordon Porter and Centre for Inclusive Futures Director David Towell have developed 6 case studies profiling this work. From Canada to Peru, New Zealand, Colombia, and Spain, family associations work tireless to make inclusive education a priority.
Below, you’ll find all 6 case studies and a summary document detailing this work.
