What is Inclusive Education?
“Inclusive education means all children in the same classrooms, in the same schools. It means real learning opportunities for groups who have traditionally been excluded – not only children with disabilities, but speakers of minority languages too.
Inclusive systems value the unique contributions students of all backgrounds bring to the classroom and allow diverse groups to grow side by side, to the benefit of all.
How we help
Teachers trained in special needs education, work with students to identify their individual learning needs and make adaptations within the classroom and teaching methods to achieve the students potential. This may involve teaching in sign language or Braille, using various manipulatives and resources to aid learning, and by adapting the content of the lessons so that the student is able to learn at their own pace, while being in an inclusive environment alongside their peers.
13% of children in Uganda, more than 2.5 million, are living with a disability.
At QINES we offer a unique intervention in children with disabilities lives through a holistic approach to education that aims at ‘helping all children reach their full life potential’. Our strategies are research and rights based, in line with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities charter of 2006 to which Uganda is a signed up and ratified member country. Our mission follows closely the country’s vision 2040 theme that our interventions now will play a significant part in making both the UN and Ugandan goals bear desired fruits in the future.
