Learning and skills
When children with disability are included in a mainstream class in their local school, everyone benefits in the short and long term. But even in 2021, it can be difficult for our sons and daughters with disability to be effectively included in the same school as their siblings, friends and neighbours.

Many families have found that it’s helpful to have a working knowledge of educational inclusion and to know what the school needs to provide to make inclusion possible. It’s also critical to know how to ask for these in a manner that strengthens the relationship between the school and the family.

This workshop is suitable for families of students of all ages (primary, high school and secondary college) as well as families whose children haven’t yet started school.
