ESRC-DFID Research for Policy and Practice: Disability and Education

This collection of ESRC–DFID funded research provides new evidence on what governments must consider in order to ensure that children with disabilities benefit from quality education without discrimination or exclusion.This research contains excellent, globally relevant and contextually grounded evidence of how the education sector can plan and design policies with a lasting impact for children with disabilities. It highlights the value of a study led by deaf researchers in India; explores school-readiness in Malawi; offers greater understanding of the experiences and challenges faced by children with disabilities within the classroom across six countries; and advances strategies on how to support the learning and teaching of children facing multiple disadvantages, including disabilities, in India and Pakistan.
