SENIA, the Special Education Network in Asia is a fantastic resource for educators of all types. Over a decade old, SENIA holds conferences with fantastic speakers, creates local chapters, provides networking opportunities and generally gives a push to school in their regions to move toward an inclusive model of education.
Today I talk with Kate Balsamo, a SENIA board member, about the organization including its roots, its activities and its plans for the future.
