Disability and Education

Past Research Projects

In the field of disability and education, there are many studies on disability policy comparisons, concepts ideological discussions and case studies of educational projects, but there are few that have managed to gather significant data for analysis and empirical studies. It is also the case that empirical studies in developing countries are usually not used for policy formulation due to the lack of credible data.
The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of various forms of education provision on children both with and without disabilities. It also seeks to draw attention to the perspectives of teachers, parents/guardians and students, from the viewpoints of human rights, cost-effectiveness and education. Eventually, the focus of this study is to call for the implementation of educational policies that are highly suitable to the respective country contexts.
