Creating Inventive Ways to Help Children with Disabilities Learn
Students with disabilities have lower attendance rates and are more likely to be out of school or leave school before completing primary education, limiting their future employment opportunities and putting them at risk of living in poverty. In the US, 34.8% of children who are blind or visually impaired are identified as non-readers.
