Description

This toolkit was designed by faculty and staff from the University of Minnesota and Armenian State Pedagogical University (ASPU) in the Republic of Armenia to help educators to include students with disabilities in regular classrooms, schools, and after-school activities. The toolkit includes:

      Funded by UNICEF Armenia, the faculty and staff from the University of Minnesota and ASPU developed these inclusive education materials to be relevant to both U.S. and Armenian contexts. Each chapter in the textbook, for example, was co-authored by U.S. and Armenian authors to ensure the inclusive strategies could be implemented meaningfully in the Armenian education system. Significantly, the textbook will be the first inclusive education resource in the Armenian language and co-authored by Armenian academics and educators working in the field. The film, Education for Every Child: Armenia's Path to Inclusion, highlights some of the milestones toward inclusive education in Armenia. All materials are or will be available in both English and Armenian.
