The following extracts of children talking about their experiences of inclusion are drawn from research
that was conducted by the Visual Impairment Centre for Teaching and Research (VICTAR) in the School of Education, University of Birmingham in the UK, the Malawi Institute of Education (MIE) and the Montfort Special Needs Education College in Limbe in Southern Malawi. The eighteen month study was designed to identify the ‘barriers’ that face children learning through braille in local mainstream schools and took place in Malawi during 2008-09. This project focused on eight children (7 who are blind and one with severe low vision) who are attending mainstream primary schools in five districts in Southern Malawi. The full results of the research are contained in a report called ‘Literacy for All’ – Developing Literacy through Touch in the Mainstream Classroom’ which was presented to the Ministry of Education in Malawi in February 2010.
