Basirat is currently researching the perspectives and lived experiences of children with neurodevelopmental disorders and their parents in accessing education in a Nigerian context. She is interested in issues of voices and participation of parents and children as well as policies and practices that can reduce education exclusion for children with disabilities in low-income countries.

Her first book won the 2020 British Council ELTons Special Commendation for Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion.

My name is IJ Popoola and I'm the host of Mrs. IJ's Kids Inclusive Podcast, a show focusing on the challenges of inclusive education for students with disabilities, as well as providing resources for parents, caregivers, educators, and all stakeholders in the African diaspora and in African Nations. We focus on the possibilities of fully inclusive educational practices in general education classrooms.
