Haramaya University in Ethiopia recently announced that it has launched a new program to make its academic programs more accessible to students with disabilities. The program, called Accessibility to Education and Training (AET), is the first of its kind in Ethiopia and is aimed at helping students with disabilities access education and training opportunities.

The university launched the program in partnership with the National Council for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD). The initiative is part of a larger effort to ensure that all students have access to quality education.

The AET program will provide support to students with a wide range of disabilities, including physical, intellectual, and emotional impairments. It will provide a range of services to support students, such as specialized learning materials, adapted testing methods, and physical accommodations. The program has already provided training and support to more than 200 students with disabilities.

The university has also implemented a number of measures to make its facilities and services more accessible to students with disabilities. For example, it has installed ramps, widened doorways, and improved lighting. It has also invested in adaptive technology, such as special keyboards and software, to make it easier for students to access course materials and participate in online classes.

The university also has an accessibility officer who is available to provide support and guidance to students with disabilities. The officer also works with faculty and staff to ensure that the university is compliant with accessibility laws.

Haramaya University is committed to making sure that all students have access to quality education, regardless of their physical or mental abilities. Through the AET program, they are making great strides in removing barriers to education and training for students with disabilities.
