Inclusive Education

“When I saw him with such a great mood and desire to go to school [after his first day], from that moment we did not have any doubt anymore whether our child should go to school or not,” said Iulian’s mother.

After spending his early years in the residential institution in Orhei, Iulian has returned home to his family and is now attending a local school with his peers. Although his mother and teacher initially had doubts about sending him to school, they no longer question whether school is the right path for him. “Each success made us aim higher, thinking, ‘Let’s try, maybe he will be able to do that, too? Let’s try this, let’s try that,’” said Iulian’s mother. Iulian has continued to exceed expectations and has thrived in an inclusive classroom.

Keystone Moldova is working to provide equal access to education for all children. Not only are children with disabilities receiving support to attend their local community schools with their peers, but teachers and other educators are receiving training and education in inclusive classrooms and the provision of individual educational plans. Additionally, the Inclusive Education service is raising awareness in the community and encouraging people to take a more positive attitude toward children with disabilities and inclusive education.

For her part, Iulian’s mother sees a bright future for her son. “I wish he could develop as many abilities that would enable him to perform a job,” she said. “So much courage and optimism I have in my soul that I think anything is possible.”
