Families for Inclusive Education Project is a new project for CRU funded by the Department of Education.

This project will:

  • support families to have a clear vision for their son or daughter and become more informed about inclusive education and current inclusive education policies,
  • help families develop communication and advocacy skills so they can work effectively with their child’s school,
  • build families’ confidence and support networks so they can sustain their efforts as valued partners in their child’s education
  • provide information and resourcing to service providers including local schools.

In the next year, the Families for Inclusive Education Project, CRU will host two workshops in each of 15 locations across Queensland.

The workshops

These workshops will be:

  • An introductory half day workshop called “Inclusive Education – Setting the Direction for Success
  • A full day (9.15am -2.30pm) workshop called “Inclusive Education: Working Effectively with your Child’s School

The project will also develop and disseminate resources/case studies, host webinars, foster peer support networks and provide information and individual consultations to families and others who support the education of students with disability.

Locations

The workshop locations are: Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Mount Isa, Rockhampton, Roma, Toowoomba, Sunshine Coast, Ipswich, Greater Brisbane (4 locations),  Logan and the Gold Coast.

Where interested families live outside these locations, there is a small amount of travel/support funding available. (These workshops are for parents/guardians of students with disability currently enrolled in a Queensland state school). Eligible families can apply through CRU to access this support.

More information on the project including a full list of workshops being offered in 2019 will be available soon on this page. If you are interested in finding out more please provide your details below.
