Regional Conference on Inclusion and Special Education Needs

Hello, we are BACK!!!

Date: 27th & 28th October 2009
Venue: Equatorial Hotel, Bangi Selangor, Malaysia.
Time: 8a.m - 6p.m

The effort to improve the educational quality and equity for all requires the active participation of all stakeholders in implementing inclusive education in our schools. This is in line with the proposal which was agreed in the 48th UNESCO International Conference on Education (Geneva, 25-28 November 2008). Inclusive education is a process of strengthening the capacity of the education system to reach out to all learners, including the following:

Learners with disabilities (sensory, cognitive, physical and motor)
Learners who are gifted and talented
Learners with autism spectrum disorders
Learners who have problems in reading, writing and mathematics
Learners with emotional and behavioral problems
Learners with multiple disabilities
Learners who lived in remote rural areas
Learners who are at risk of school failure

The Regional Conference on Inclusion and Special Educational Needs 2009 is a platform for an in-depth and open discussion on the policies and strategies that can successfully overcome exclusion, both from education and within education, thus contributing to build more inclusive, just and equitable societies.
