Working with the United Nation's Leave No One Behind Programme in Albania, this project documented and assessed the current state of social inclusion for persons with intellectual disabilities and other neurological or developmental disorders. The team conducted 31 interviews with persons with disabilities, their parents, service providers, and government officials in Tirana, Albania. The project analyzed the qualitative data gained from our conversations to uncover themes of discrimination, insufficient services, and mistreatment towards people with disabilities. From these findings, the team suggested areas of future research, information sessions, and community interventions which aim to improve the social inclusion of persons with disabilities in Tirana, Albania.
