USAID Leading Through Learning Global Platform: Disability Inclusive Pre-primary Landscape Review

IDP is leading a landscape review to provide USAID and its partners with better understanding of how disability-inclusive pre-primary education (PPE) manifests across a range of contexts, in order to help inform future USAID programming. This landscape review is part of the United States Agency for International Development’s Leading through Learning Global Platform (USAID LTLGP), which is implemented by the Education Development Center (EDC). The landscape review will look at what organizations are working in the PPE space, what they are doing and what their goals/objectives are, in order to inform future USAID programming. In addition to the landscape review, IDP will also hold regional and global ideation events to gather best practices and innovative ideas on how to best ensure children with disabilities and their families have access to  quality, equitable and inclusive PPE programming. Both the landscape review and ideation events will inform the creation of a white paper, which will include guiding principles to consider when creating inclusive PPE, best practices for implementing inclusive PPE, and key considerations and challenges.
