There are children with different learning needs in every classroom. Children with disabilities educated in regular schools outperform those educated in segregated settings. An inclusive school environment benefits all children, not just those with disabilities.

The National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020) envisages an inclusive and structural change in the educational system. It focuses on Equitable and Inclusive Education’ which reverberates the idea that no child should be left behind.

This webinar will discuss some of the salient points related to inclusive education and learning disabilities mentioned within the NEP 2020. Our panelists are experts on the subject with backgrounds in research, practice, and literature.
