Inclusive Education Evening Discussion
March 1, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
About the workshop:
Every parent wants their child’s school years to be happy and successful – for school to be a place where their child learns, has friends, participates and belongs. For children with disability, these dreams depend on finding and maintaining an inclusive school culture and achieving positive relationships between the school and the family.
As the 2016 school year starts, it is timely for parents to consider what they can do to get off to a good start in developing an effective partnership with their child’s school. The presentation will include a mix of practical tips and a links to policy and research.
- What makes an inclusive classroom and school?
- Understanding the policy context – what promotes and what stands in the way of inclusive school cultures?
- What can parents do to build and maintain an inclusive school culture?
- Tips for building effective partnerships with the school
