The Dubai Inclusive Education Policy Framework (2017) and subsequent documentation places parents and students at the heart of provision for inclusion,in the education system.
It states that schools should:
•actively engage families, parents, caregivers and other relevant stakeholders, such as community and social workers and medical professionals, to share responsibility for the education of students who experience SEND
•encourage and support parent/family participation in the education process and ensure that they have every opportunity to contribute to student success
•ensure that parents of children who experience SEND, and where appropriate the children themselves, play a central part in the development of the IEP and related programme design
Parents find this daunting and are often left bewildered by the conversation and journey. These sessions will support parents to be actively engaged in their child’s learning and engage meaningfully and constructively with schools.
