Millions of children around the world are excluded from access to education because of a disability.
Education for All: Disability, Diversity and Inclusion is a free massive open online course (MOOC) that was developed by the Disability Studies Programme in UCT’s Department of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences.
It focuses on the importance of inclusive education, which involves addressing barriers to learning and participation, and transforming school communities.
The course aims to help parents, educators and occupational and allied therapists to tackle inclusion in a practical way and looks at the background of disability and strategies for creating an enabling environment in both schools and communities, particularly those in low-resourced environments.
The Department of Basic Education has voiced its support for the course saying it, “values such an open online training course, which showcases best practice in South Africa”.
