Inclusion Europe is publishing a briefing on
the lack of education for children with intellectual disabilities
in the Coronavirus emergency.

discrimination of people with intellectual disabilities.

schools are closed.
The shutdown of schools is a major problem for
students with intellectual disabilities,
their families and their teachers.
Most students with intellectual disabilities are not able to
continue their learning during the Coronavirus lockdown.
Schools and governments must ensure that
discrimination and exclusion of students with intellectual disabilities
do not become normal.
