Community Living Ontario presents inclusive education webinar series
Get ready to become empowered.
Community Living Ontario is set to demystify the concept of inclusive education and arm parents and teachers with the right information and tools to advocate for a child’s right to learn in an inclusive setting.
Community Living Ontario's Community InclusionCommunity Inclusion Initiative is offering a series of webinars over the upcoming months that puts the spotlight on various aspects of inclusive education.
“There is something for everyone in this series,” says Kimberley Gavan, Community Living Ontario’s director of community development.
“People often have questions about inclusive education and don’t really have a place to ask them. They are left trying to sort it out themselves in what they feel is such a complex system,” Gavan explains.
“This series simplifies it all and takes a person on a journey from the broader international issues to the tools needed in the classroom to modify the curriculum in a student’s day.”
Participants can tune into one or all sessions.
Webinars are every two weeks and continue through to 2013.
As an outcome of the webinar series, Gavan would like to see people “all start to work from the belief that in every child there is an ability to profit educationally and socially from being together in a regular class.
“My hope is to continue to build a safe place to question, to explore and to continue learning together. As long as that happens, I think we are on track to building more inclusive and welcoming communities, of which schools are just a part.”
