Upon the request of the Special Education Organization, UNICEF Iran provided 1,266 tablets for  students with special needs across the country to support  online distance learning during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Procured with  financial support from the Cultural Center of Frenso (ICCF), the tablets were distributed among  inclusive schools nationwide in close collaboration with the Special Education Organization.

The project, part of UNICEF and the Ministry of Education’s joint efforts to provide equal access to education among children with special needs, was implemented during the COVID-19 related school closures from April to December 2021.

Throughout the pandemic, UNICEF has  supported the Special Education Organization to enhance access to distance learning  for children with special needs through equipping distance learning studios in all provinces and procurement of assistive learning devices for these children.
