Need more guidance? Here is how to get started
  • Review the VIA Framework for Meaningful Participation in Inclusive Education. As you do so, refer to the glossary of key terms and the summary of children’s and families’ rights. 

  • Click through the practical checklists to dig deeper into each element of the VIA Framework and access resources that can help you reflect on, plan and evaluate avenues for participation. 

  • Read relevant examples of practice from Agency member countries and the Agency itself. These may inspire ideas for your own country, region, municipality, district or school. Use the search filters to narrow down by topic. 

  • If you seek more information, use the search filters in our ‘Resource library’ to find resources across different focus areas.
