Results of activities in Vietnam

In April 2022, we went to survey in 8 districts of Tra Vinh Province and 11 districts of Kien Giang Province. Each place, we visited a preschool and an elementary school. We interviewed 60 key teachers and also listened to the opinions of about 30 people who are officials in charge of the People's Committees of wards and communes, experts from the district Education Department, and administrators of schools that we visited. In addition, the experts of the Asian Rainbow also listened to the opinions of about 100 people who are parents, the homeroom teachers of the inclusive classrooms and also students in another office.

The teacher of the integration class commented on the current situation of students

• Students already know how to brush teeth, carry water, wash their face or go to the toilet alone, know how to hold a spoon and eat by themselves.
• In the past, students used to run around so they had to be accompanied by a grandmother, but after following the IEP (individual education plan), the child learned to sit in a chair to study, so she no longer came.
• Students could not read the text, so the teacher taught poetry. After a while, when the students were able to memorize the words, the students seemed very happy. Students make progress.
• After implementing the IEP, students have learned Vietnamese, often expressing opinions during class time.
• Teachers have confidence when teaching inclusion, so students are also confident in learning.
• There are currently 3 students at the school who are learning integration, the teachers have developed an IEP so they are learning better.
