Inclusive Education: Making a Good Start – Planning and Partnerships to Support your Child’s Inclusion

February 27, 2019

There are 2 sessions to choose from to attend this event.

Please choose one session – daytime or evening, when booking tickets

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.

As the 2019 school year starts, it is timely for parents to consider what they can do to develop an effective partnership with their child’s school and plan for a successful year at school.

The presentation will include a mix of family stories and practical tips, and direct families to valuable resources. There will be opportunities for questions and discussion.

Topics covered:

  • Developing and sharing your family vision
  • Tips for setting up the school year well
  • Knowing what to ask for – understanding key elements of an inclusive classroom and school
  • Understanding key policies, frameworks and school processes.
  • The role of parents in building and maintaining an inclusive school culture
  • Tips for building effective partnerships with the school


About the Presenters:

Lisa Bridle works at CRU as Senior Consultant in Leadership Development. She will be joined by some experienced parents from the Queensland Collective for Inclusive Education who will contribute stories and tips from their own experience of supporting their child’s inclusive education.
