Millions of children around the world are excluded from access to education because of a disability – robbing them of their potential and diminishing our society.
On this course you will learn about inclusive education, understanding what barriers there are to learning and how to challenge them. Over six weeks you will learn from a range of people with experience of disability, discovering practical ways to create a more inclusive learning environment that you can apply in your own area.
