Post-secondary Education for Persons with Disabilities

I was involved in a project, “Advocacy and Leadership: Enhancing Educational and Employment Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities” that brought together 7 principal partners (4 Canadian and 3 European) and resulted in the mobility of 70 students. The project developed a global framework for defining and working within the disabilities field that tapped into different cultural interpretations of disabilities and prepared students for leadership in their communities and workplaces. From this project we have documented Canadian, Belgian, Finnish and English perspectives on promoting inclusion among post-secondary learners.
