In the latest publication in the Emirates Occasional Papers series, Muna M. Alhammadi examines whether the UAE’s higher educational institutions are fulfilling their duty to offer equal access and support to students with vision impairment (SWVI).
Dr. Alhammadi, an assistant professor at Zayed University, uses qualitative research methods to collect and analyze data to examine the accessibility and orientation issues affecting SWVI.
The study provides an in-depth analysis of the challenges facing SWVI in higher education, while offering proposals into how universities and the relevant authorities can create a more inclusive educational environment for these students.
