04 SES 08 A, Case Studies of Inclusion in Central Asia
A range of observations of lessons and interviews with key stakeholders forms the basis of this case study of Petrapavlosk School # 13 which began including children with physical disabilities on the initiative of the school director. While much more straightforward than including children with sensory or intellectual disabilities, this decision still remains outside the norm in Kazakhstan where the system of special schools remains quite strong. This case study indicates how this school director was able to convince parents and teachers of the value of inclusion and it will consider how the school has been able to broaden the scope of its work on inclusion, and to develop innovation by educators in advancing inclusive education. It will describe how the school sought funding from the regional government, gathered literature on inclusion and developed training for teachers. Examples of community innovation and risk taking that infected the students and staff will be described.
