Happy New Year! We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and ready to take on 2022 with tenacity! This year will be critical for disability inclusive development, especially for education of children with disabilities. The second Global Disability Summit is just around the corner (15-17 February) and we are looking forward to the commitments that are made towards disability-inclusive education. Significant progress has been made since the first Global Disability Summit in 2018 and we look forward to learning about advancement and next steps!
As a Community of Practice, we are over 2300 members strong! We encourage you to keep sharing resources and engage in discussions, as this community wouldn't exist without you. And it goes without saying that we are grateful for our continued collaboration in achieving the goal of ensuring all children have access to quality inclusive education.
This issue features many resources that were shared in December around the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. There was much to celebrate!
Please reach out to us if you have a blog post or anything you would like featured on the IEI website—we are happy to feature your work on disability-inclusive education. You can email us at email@example.com or join our LinkedIn Group and post questions directly there.
With best wishes for a wonderful 2022,
The Inclusive Education Initiative Team
