In true African spirit this Indawo (Zulu) is the place where we discuss issues, research and training for children exhibiting neurodevelopmental learning needs.
We work in conjunction with the University of Johannesburg’s vision of uplifting communities and the innovation of the pursuit of innovative knowledge.
The Indawo is a resource for the community of teachers, parents, families and school therapists involved in teaching and supporting all children.
The Indawo is sponsored by the Department of Higher Education and Training, and the European Union in the ‘Teaching and Learning Development Capacity Improvement Programme’ – Special Needs Education with the focus area of supporting the education of learners with neurodevelopmental learning needs.
We collaborate with other universities working in this focus area of special needs education and with other support agencies.
We imagine a society where children with special educational needs are uplifted by our academic endeavours and conversations that embrace diversity.
Our research focuses on ethical educational innovation. We develop communities of practice through collaboration and indigenising of special educational needs knowledge.
