Abstract

Keynote

Inclusive Education: Getting To Know And Planning For Learners From A Strength-Based Perspective Curriculum and Inclusion

This session will deconstruct what inclusive education means in today’s classrooms and communities. We will also discuss common misunderstandings and myths and leave with ideas and possibilities of inclusive leaning communities and all who benefit.

“Deep-Dive” inclusion workshop

Inclusive Education: It’s Not More Work, It’s Different Work

This session will look at how changing planning models are moving away from deficit medical based frameworks to plans that look at the strengths and contributions of individuals. We will see examples and share strategies of how these strength based perspectives can guide program planning with a focus on balance and growth rather than retrofitting and standardization.

During this workshop participants will understand:

– what inclusion is and how it has evolved over time
– how inclusion is connected to diversity
– how to implement inclusion strategies for both individuals and class groupings
– the importance of inclusion in our classroom and school communities
