For more than a year now, the COVID-19 pandemic created a new reality for EU societies, in all their aspects including education. One year ago, many governments closed schools, and students had to continue their education from home. The alternation of education in presence and long-distance through digital learning platforms and tools have become the new reality for students and teachers.
This webinar will bring together support service providers, family organisations and other stakeholders to present and discuss:
- The state of play for the access to education for learners with disabilities in different EU countries.
- How education support services adapted to meet the needs of learners and their families while home schooling.
- How support services can help learners and their families as schools begin to re-open within the confines of COVID-19 lockdown measures.
- The key actions that must be taken to ensure that education and long-distant learning platforms are fully inclusive in the future.
