TOWNSVILLE Inclusive Education Workshop: Becoming a Better Advocate for your Child’s Inclusion
October 31, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Inclusive Education Workshop: Becoming a Better Advocate for your Child’s Inclusion
Enrolling at the local school is something most Australian families take for granted. Being part of the many aspects of school life is an important building block for taking out place in the broader community. However, for children who have a disability this doesn’t just happen.
Getting a genuinely inclusive education and maintaining the inclusive path over the school years requires parents to be skilled and effective advocates.
It is common to feel unsure of what to ask for and what approach to take if you want to influence and change what is happening in the school context.
This session will give parents some of the fundamentals of what to ask for when pursuing an inclusive education, an introduction to advocacy principles and strategies, and tips on common pitfalls.
The session will include formal presentations and opportunity for discussion.
Who should attend?
This half day workshop is open to all parents seeking an inclusive education for their child.
It will be relevant to those with children in mainstream school, and those wanting to enrol their child in regular school.
**RSVP by Friday 21st October 2016 ** Numbers are limited **
