Christiana Okyere, PhD in Rehabilitation Science, supervised by Drs Heather Aldersey and Rosemary Lysaght

Topic: Inclusive Education for Children with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities in Ghana. Overview: The 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and Human Rights Conventions such as the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability have recognized the right of children with disabilities to be included in general education settings. Several empirical global studies on inclusion and disability have shown that inclusive education provides the best opportunity to support the development of persons with disabilities. However, implementing inclusive education in developing countries such as Ghana where disability often signifies a complete disqualification from education can be challenging. The overarching goal of my research is to understand the experience and implementation of inclusive education with children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) in Accra, Ghana.
