Policy implications and guidelines for addressing disability as a barrier

Learners who experience barriers to learning as a result of disability should be welcomed in ordinary school environments provided that the necessary support is in place for learners to achieve their full potential. Teams that include parents, teachers and other relevant professionals should establish the nature and extent of support needed by the learner. Below are a few examples of how the system could be modified or changed to meet different kinds of support that individual learners may require:

• Modified access to buildings e.g. ramps, adapted toilets and speaker systems in where applicable.
• Brailed signage on doorframes, passages and outbuildings.

• Therapeutic intervention.
Learner based and learner paced teaching.
