  • 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.

Inclusive Education: Rethinking Ability and Opportunity

About the workshop
This is a rare opportunity to hear from people with disability who have first-hand experience of being educated under different models of education.
In this workshop, Norm Kunc and Emma Van der Klift will reflect on their student experiences, both the challenges and successes.
They will also draw on educator experiences and research to challenge us to rethink ideas of “doing inclusion” so schools can intentionally build and maintain a sense of belonging for all students and adults in the school.
They argue that an ongoing confusion between ability and opportunity holds back progress in inclusive education.
Topics covered will include:

  • Belonging as an inherent need of all people
  • Collaborative planning
  • Effective classroom and school based supports
  • Better ideas for supporting students who need support around behaviour

Presenters:
Norman Kunc and Emma Van der Klift from Vancouver, Canada are well-known speakers and advocates within the disability rights community. On their first visit to Brisbane these modern day storytellers will use humour and narrative to initiate self-reflection and social change.
Norman and Emma travel throughout North America and internationally providing training in the areas of inclusive education, employment equity, behaviour support, and other disability rights issues. They have also developed ‘Conversations that Matter,’ an online values training platform featuring the leading voices in community living and disability rights.

Who should attend?
This workshop is for parents of school aged children and teachers, principals and other educators interested in successful inclusion in regular classrooms.

CRU has some capacity to reduce registration fees and assist with other costs, particularly for people with disability & family members not sponsored by an organisation. Contact CRU for more information.
