Inclusion: Is our society ready for it?

From 2012 – 2015, the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers’ Association (TTUTA) entered into a collaborative partnership with the Canadian Teachers’ Federation (CTF) to provide a two-week in-service development training workshop for general education classroom teachers with an emphasis on children with special education needs in the mainstream classroom. Additional support for this initiative was provided by the Ministry of Education and the then Division of Education, Youth and Sports (DEYA) of the Tobago House of Assembly.
