Supporting Children with Special Education Needs in Several Schools in the Palestinian Territories

Palestine

Titre : Supporting Children with Special Education Needs in Several Schools in the Palestinian Territories

Pays : Palestine, Bethlehem, East Jerusalem and North Hebron

Numéro projet : 2014-026

Durée : Project start date : September 2014 - Project end date : September 2015

Contexte
The percentage of children with learning difficulties in Palestine is the highest of the Middle Eastern region. One of the reason is the difficult context they live : the permanent occupation, the uncertainty, the bad economic and social situation ; all this affects children who are the most vulnerable elements of society. The Israeli occupation in the Palestinian Territories, especially after the construction of the Separation Wall in 2002 and the big number of checkpoints and inside borders along the West Bank, have contributed to the development of an atmosphere of stress and fear that affects daily lives.

Description
The problem that this project addresses is therefore the lack of training among active teachers in Palestine so as to contribute to the Ministry of Education’s effort of promoting an inclusive education model in the OPT. Training teachers on new learning methodologies and providing them with appropriate tools to manage students with learning difficulty means to guarantee the permanence of those children in the school system.

This project wishes to achieve the following goals :
1. At least 50% of children with special education needs of the participating schools have better and more qualified attention.
2. The model of inclusive education is promoted in at least 10 schools of Bethlehem area, East Jerusalem and North Hebron.
