Inclusive Education Evening Discussion: Becoming a Better Advocate for your Child’s Inclusion

Inclusion in school (and life) does not “just happen”. Some mainstream schools are very welcoming, but getting a genuinely inclusive education and maintaining the inclusive path over the school years requires parents to be skilled and effective advocates. Most parents find school advocacy challenging! It is common to feel unsure of what you can ask for, and what approach to take if you want change. At times, parents can feel like they have little influence over what is happening with their child’s education. Even when lucky and enjoying a “good year”, there is the question of how to stay on track.

This interactive session is designed as a sharing of “lessons in advocacy” drawing on the wisdom and experience of families who have successfully advocated for school inclusion.
