NADA India to host Inclusion Conclave for the first time to focus on athletes with disabilities: National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA India) is hosts an Inclusion Conclave for the first time to sharpen the focus on anti-doping education and processes for athletes with disabilities. The conclave will be addressed by Secretary Department of Sports Smt. Sujata Chaturvedi, UN Resident Coordinator Shombi Sharp, and WADA Asia-Oceania Regional Office Manager Kenny Lee. The Conclave will be followed by a two-hour long inclusive anti-doping education workshop for Athletes with Disabilities with focus on Therapeutic Use Exemption, Doping Control Process, Anti-Doping Rule Violations as well rights and responsibilities of athletes with disabilities and support personnel.
NADA India has previously created extensive anti-doping education and awareness modules in Universal Design of Learning (UDL) for athletes with disabilities. UDL is a multi-modal framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all persons using sign language visual representation, transcribed subtitles and content audio. Some materials, which were previously exclusively available in print, are now available in Braille and audio forms as well. Furthermore, NADA India has held sensitization training for Dope Control Officers (DCO) who collect samples from athletes with disabilities, as well as upgraded the DCO kit for these athletes.
