Research paper with sketch notes appreciated during conference on inclusive education
A paper with sketch notes presented at the National Conference on Paradigm Shift in Inclusive Schooling; held from 23rd to 25th January 2017 at Tata Institute of Social Sciences in Mumbai.

The conference was attended by researchers, teachers and educators engaged in education of children with disabilities in an inclusive setting; was appreciated and applauded since it was both in text and visuals and made even abstract ideas comprehensible.

According to the research study done at Jaipur's Disha NGO and presented at the conference in Mumbai, the mainstream general education schools of Jaipur discriminate against children with hidden learning disabilities despite the fact that children were admitted after having cleared the admission test and they were pushed out of the school.

The most interesting point of the communication and presentation style of the paper is the sketch notes for research supported by seven case illustrations narrated by parents of such children and were recorded by Dr. Lalit Kishore and Dr. Savita Jagawat of Disha. The latter, presented the paper at the recently concluded conference.

Sketch notes are purposefully hand-drawn visuals and written text to heighten interest in understanding a concept. They don't require high level drawing skills but free-hand drawing of visual symbols to synthesize and summarize the ideas via shapes, connectors, and text and deemed as creative expression. And these attributes of the paper made it interesting to present and was appreciated.
