Knowledge Café: Education and quality of life for students with disabilities
The 2022 Autumn Knowledge Café is open to all participants who wish to learn more about innovative initiatives in the field of inclusive education. In particular, we will present a study undertaken by the Salamanca University INICO department to provide tools for the scaling up the Quality of Life Index for Inclusive Education, that measure the impact of inclusive education in the quality of life of students with intellectual disability and was developed and tested in Spain. We will also learn about the perspectives of service users, service providers, and European organisations, before opening the floor for questions and discussions.
