Topics include:

  • Making practical and reasonable adjustments for meaningful inclusion
  • Positive behaviour support
  • Social stories
  • Successful teacher and education support staff collaboration

Attendance at this conference can contribute to your VIT professional development.

"An excellent and informative day that should be a compulsory part of both pre-service teacher training and ongoing teacher professional development."

"The day was highly practical and also inspired me to continue with what we are beginning to do in our school."

"As a teacher new to working with a student with Down Syndrome it was informative and helpful."
