    OpenMinds has been actively lobbying and helping schools embrace sustainable special educational programs and activities in their normal curricula. In October 2014, OpenMinds completely renovated two floors at the Lebanese Evangelical School to create therapy rooms dedicated to functional academic programs geared towards kids with special needs.  Such programs allow children to learn practical skills needed in daily life.

    Last year OpenMinds sent a team of professionals, board members and parents to Harvard to attend a program entitled “Universal Design for Learning: Leading Inclusive Education for All Students” (UDL). This knowledge was put into practice by hosting a two day workshop on UDL at Antonine International School (AIS). The workshop was given by Mrs. Lara el Khatib in collaboration with OpenMinds to a group of teachers at Antonine International School in March of this year. They were taught key principles of UDL by analyzing concrete examples and real life case studies. At the end of the workshop, teachers evaluated its quality and content.
