The IASE has established a Volunteer Service Committee to facilitate the identification of special educational needs in developing countries and connect a volunteer resource person who is an IASE member. There is a shortage of expertise in special education in many developing countries and the IASE has many members with vast special educational experience who can provide volunteer assistance during their retirement, sabbatical year or summer holidays. Presently, IASE has Volunteer Service sites in Bangladesh, Colombia, India, Malawi, Tanzania and Vietnam.
