Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Over the last 2 decades, increasing numbers of children with disability have been included in mainstream classrooms. Currently 60% of students with disability are in a mainstream school setting.

This workshop will explore inclusive education and provide families and educators with information and strategies.

Who should come?

The workshop will be useful for family members, friends and educators of a student with disability exploring the possibilities of an inclusive and successful mainstream school education.

What the day will explore?

Your questions answered…

  • Is school inclusion a good idea?
  • What research is there on the effect on children's academic and social development?
  • What is the effect on other children in the class?
  • How can families prepare for moving from preschool to school and primary to high school?
  • Can a child with significant disabilities be included, even in a physics class?
  • What if I am not happy with what is happening at school?
  • How can real friendships develop?
  • What can parents and educators do to make successful inclusion more likely?
