Committed to inclusion both locally in the UAE and globally, the Advancing Inclusion of Children with Disabilities in the UAE Workshop, seeks to positively influence inclusion outcomes around the world by enhancing awareness of the right of every child to full inclusion in their community. This workshop focuses on international inclusion best practices, neurodiversity and its relevance to inclusion in education and the community, ways to foster a sense of belonging for all children, and the importance of building positive partnerships with children with disabilities, families, and community agencies. Sessions are led by experts in their field who also have real-world experience building and supporting inclusive practices globally.
