Fulbright Webinar: Inclusion for Students with Learning Differences and their Families: a Path to Success

 In Uncategorized

On October 27, 2021, the Binational Fulbright Commission in Egypt (BFCE) hosted its second episode on accessibility and inclusion of individuals with special physical and learning needs. This webinar was a follow up on a conversation that started in May when BFCE hosted 3 panels of experts from Egypt and the US who covered several topics starting with overarching policy issues, employers’ perspectives and workforce needs, grassroots and local initiatives as well as opportunities and accommodations for students and scholars to ensure that no one is left behind when it comes to academic programs and training opportunities. Speakers highlighted initiatives that were triggered by the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act (the ADA) and the Egyptian law number #10 that passed in 2018.

In the 2nd episode, the speakers discussed inclusion of individuals with special needs and resources for their families. The panel included: Dr. Ehab El Biblawi, Dean of the Faculty of Disability Sciences and Rehabilitation at Zagazig University; Dr. Sarah Dababnah, Fulbright US Scholar and Associate Professor at the School of Social Work at the  University of Maryland, Baltimore; Dr. Nermin Shaker, Professor of Psychiatry at Ain Shams University; and Dr. Manal Omar, Assistant Professor of Post Graduate Childhood Studies at Ain Shams University.
