Guidance on Including Children with Disabilities - Education Kit Handbook
Three supplements to the UNICEF Education Kit Handbooks provide guidance on how to include children with disabilities in educational activities.
These three publications provide teachers, caregivers, instructors and trainers with practical ideas on how best to include children with disabilities in all their activities. They act as supplements to the UNICEF Education Kit Handbook.
The supplements cover the areas of Early Childhood Development, Basic Primary Education and Recreation.
The first part of each note is common to all three supplements. It provides general information on why it is so important to take an inclusive approach and focus on ensuring children with disabilities are not only present but can participate fully and achieve. It also provides suggestions on how to raise awareness and encourage the community and others to get involved in ensuring all children benefit from learning and play opportunities and provides practical suggestions on how to reach out to children with different disabilities.
The second part of each publication provides practical ideas for including children with disabilities in all lessons and activities provided in UNICEF’s Early Childhood Development (ECD), Basic Primary Education, and Recreation Kits.
By recognizing the individual needs of every child and planning or adapting activities to meet those needs, teachers, caregivers, instructors and trainers will be able to give all children the opportunity to enjoy the activities planned.
