Second Conference on Special Educational Needs

Saturday 14 June 2014 -
09:00 to 23:59
Sava Centre, Belgrade

On 14 June 2014 we organised the Second Conference on Special Educational Needs and Inclusive Education in Sava Centre in Belgrade.

The aim of the conference, which consisted of plenary and workshops, was to stress the importance of inclusive education as well as the adequate teacher training. We also shared the UK experiences and offered some practical advice and solutions to teachers in Serbia.

Our distinguished speakers with considerable experience in this area talked about the UK practices, challenges that teachers and decision makers faced and focused on topics such as autism and other challenging issues inclusive classroom brings. Have a look at the agenda and the presenters' bios (should you or a person around you require this document in an alternative format, please contact us).

The recording will soon be available on our YouTube channel.
