Hi all participants. We are struggling too to create conditions in order that Covid doesn't affect still more the equity in Education. Thank you. David Rodrigues, Portugal.
We are experiencing the same issue in education in Australia. Catia Malaquias, All Means All
Indeed, Education is an important issue over the world. Next week, we will have a webinar dedicated to inclusive education
The issue here in education goes beyond accessibility. Sometimes materials are accessible but they are not the same materials as provided to non disabled learners in the classrooms - so disabled students are being placed in a virtual “parallel system”
I’m a parent carer of a learning disabled teenager... we need to educate parent carers
I am president of the national association of teachers of Special Education in Portugal. If you agree I would share next week webinar with my colleagues. Than You. David Rodrigues, Portugal.
not just organisations.. parent carers need to understand how to parent their children with a human right lense
Thank you Oliver! Your covered so many important issues. We could spend hours on these

In India PwIDD and PwD are are highly rated affected under Article 11 of CRPD. Mere Rupee 1000 per PwD with 40% Disability will be paid for 90 days of Covid 19 Lockdown that is equalent to $0.14 (usdollar). One can makeout the Social Security in India for PwD is negligible.
Thanks very much Oliver, look forward to the slide shows - lots of important information in them
Advocates here in the US are quite worried about how the Covid experience might affect educational rights and supports in the future. Perhaps by pushing more kids into “homeschooling” or into segregated schools again — driven by families who perhaps are even more convinced that what works for others will not work for their children.
Thank you, Oliver. Critical topics that need consideration globally.
Thanks, Mark, too.
Yes Sue that is a great concern here too. Also distance learning has “revived” alternative curriculum materials that had been discarded in favour of ensuring access to the differentiated same curriculum/same class lesson. We are worried that now they are revived after we fought against them, they are here to stay even when children return to classrooms
inKenya disruption of learning has taken place online training has started and this is a disadvantage to children with intelecual impairment secondly access to infromation is still a major challenge social protection suport is a major issue since most aren't in the cash transfer and the caregivers most of them aren't in stable employment or non economic activity
In Australia we have less institutions in the traditional sense, but we have many forms of segregated/congregate settings where people with intellectual disabilities spend their lives - group homes, sheltered workshops, “day care centres”, etc
sue and catia... my huge worry...
I appreciate the difficulty in walking a line between treating as “special” and the huge need to embrace all people as part of the community. The high risks are real, but it is truly a risk to promote the medical model.
Thank you! Marvelous.
Most of our efforts to promote inclusion rely on presencial activities. In absence of these activities there is a real risk of a "get back" to more segregated models. We are learning how much was relying on inclusive settings.
assuming you are aware of coproduction? just in case there is a great film https://vimeo.com/42332617
sina... do you also cover UK?
thank you Sina
I’m afraid our Zoom connection is a problem - audio is garbled?
very similar issues here in Wales
Can we mute everyone except the speaker? We have some feedback that is making it hard to hear.
I think Manel said at the start that we are all automatically muted
Thank you from InFocus Advocacy!
Thank you Michael!
Thank you to all the panelists and participants. We will try to have future discussions on some of the topics covered in the coming webinars
