The seminar will present findings from several research projects conducted in education programmes supported by Sightsavers in Sub-Saharan Africa. A research project in Malawi measured the prevalence of disability in children using the UNICEF /Washington Group Child Functioning Module; projects in Senegal, Sierra Leone and Kenya explored the experiences of inclusive education among children with disabilities, their teachers and their careers, while a project in Senegal collected data on the incremental costs of inclusive education in mainstream schools. The seminar will present research findings and discuss their implications for practice and future research.
