Event Details

While it is common to talk about “community inclusion”, getting a genuinely inclusive life for your family member does not just happen. In fact, often families find their family member with disability face significant barriers in accessing the ordinary community places that others take for granted.

 

This session will focus on how families can work towards inclusion in school, recreation and whole of life.  It will discuss:

  • What inclusion is and isn’t
  • Why you would choose inclusion in school and community
  • The importance of a vision of an inclusive life
  • How to address common barriers and objections
  • How you can be a more effective advocate for your child
  • Advocacy tips and strategies
