Perspective of children and adolescents on discrimination and the barriers to Inclusive Education
Recognizing the multiple obstacles to Inclusive Education in Latin America identified through various studies, an innovative process of participatory research was developed, which collects and analyzes qualitative information from the perspective of children and adolescents with and without disabilities and their families.
The study allows a look inside schools and classrooms through the eyes of those who participate and learn in them – children and adolescents with and without disability. It seeks to be an advocacy tool and provide technical support at the regional and national levels to inform the design of programs and policies about inclusive education, based on an analysis from the expertise of the participating organizations (Fundación Saraki de Paraguay, Sociedad Peruana de Síndrome de Down y ASDOWN Colombia) and the team of Catalyst for Inclusive Education of Inclusion International.
