Fabrication laboratories (FabLabs) are utilized to materialize concepts. They can improve cognitive and creative abilities when used in a design-learning situation. Numerous studies have attempted to comprehend the relationship between makerspaces and creativity in a variety of disciplines, with the capacity to generate innovative consequences in makerspaces dependent on creativity. However, a comprehensive study that provides a holistic perspective on the contributions of labs as inclusive places that stimulate creativity for people with disabilities is absent. In order to address this study gap, the paper that follows provides an overview of FabLabs, makerspaces, and creativity and introduce the first of its kind MadaFabLab, as the first inclusive fablab in the world designed and tailored for innovators with disabilities “MadaFabLab”. The studies revealed that fablabs contribute to the development of creative person, product, physical, and social surroundings, as well as creative process. In addition, the MadaFabLab, a novel inclusive idea, fosters problem-solving, collaborative, and communication skills, and offers appealing locations and tools for the development of creative solutions to real-world challenges and needs identified by people with disabilities. We identified and analyzed five important themes pertaining to technical skills, technological and environmental factors, STEM learning, and skill development, and focused on their significance for fostering creativity in an inclusive FabLab.

This review has considered current trends in BCI research on inclusive education to assist students with disabilities in achieving improved learning outcomes for all students in an inclusive environment.
يعتبر الأشخاص ذوو الإعاقة من الفئات الهامة في المجتمع والتي تساهم في التنمية الاقتصادية والاجتماعية في الدولة. كما يعتبر إشراك هؤلاء الأشخاص في التدريب حقًا أساسيًا لهم لضمان لتطويرهم الذاتي وتنمية مهاراتهم العملية بما يحقق العدالة في المعاملة وتكافؤ الفرص تماشياً مع اتفاقية حقوق الأشخاص ذوي الإعاقة التي صادقت عليها دولة قطر في سنة 2008 .
إن هناك العديد من العوامل التي تؤثر سلباً على الأشخاص ذوي الإعاقة وتجعلهم عرضة لانخفاض مستوى احترام الذات أو انعدام الثقة في قدراتهم ومنها استبعادهم بشكل فعلي من العديد من الأنشطة الاجتماعية وقلة الفرص المتاحة لهم للحصول على التعليم والتدريب وبعض الخبرات الحياتية مقارنة بنظرائهم من غير ذوي الإعاقة. ولهذا السبب كان من الضروري معالجة هذه المشكلة من خلال دمج وإشراك الأشخاص من ذوي الإعاقة في البرامج التدريبية وتشجيعهم على التفاعل والمشاركة الكاملة وتوفير الترتيبات التيسيرية المعقولة لهم لتمكينهم ولإزالة الحواجز التي تعيق مشاركتهم.
وسنقوم في هذا الدليل بتسليط الضوء على أحدث الطرق والأساليب المتبعة في مجال تدريب الأشخاص ذوي الإعاقة والتعامل معهم وكيفية جعل البيئة التدريبية شاملة وقابلة للنفاذ.
