Worldwide millions of children are not able to fully participate in schooling, and this is especially a problem for children with disabilities. This course helps educators explore what they can do to accommodate the learning needs of children with severe to profound vision, hearing or intellectual disabilities. The UN Sustainable Development Goal 4 commits the global community to achieving inclusive and equitable quality education for all. To ensure equity in education, children with disabilities need reasonable accommodation to be able to learn. In this five week course, we consider how this can be done, by talking with a range of experts (from teachers to activists) about inclusive education and about their experiences of education.

Inclusive education is only possible if teachers are supported and empowered to make the curriculum accessible to all learners. The topics in this course cover developing disability confidence and what exactly children with specific impairments need to be able to learn. This includes sharing specific classroom strategies and teaching activities for learners who are D/deaf or hard of hearing, blind or have low vision or have a severe to profound intellectual disability. By the end of the course, you will be familiar with the impairment specific needs of learners with disabilities, and how to build systems of support for inclusive education.

You will be able to purchase a Verified Certificate if you wish to show evidence of your achievements, but this is optional, and you may apply for Financial Aid if you are unable to pay the certificate fee.
