Morning Session Co-Presenter – Otto Lana

 

INCLUSIVE EDUCATION MEANS we no longer accept that separate classrooms, separate schools, and separate lives are in the best interest of any student. Separating peoplevby ability disadvantages everyone. Belonging is a human need. Our educational system, practices, and spaces, need to be reimagined.

INCLUSIVE EDUCATION MEANS every student is valued because of their strengths, gifts, and even challenges. As disability is simply… diversity. Everyone benefits from meaningful participation and opportunities to learn grade level content with diverse peers. We must trust that all students come to us as incredible whole people who do not need to be fixed.

INCLUDE YOUR
YOUNGEST LEARNERS

Disabled/Non-Disabled – Eligible/Not Eligible. Let’s stop drawing lines between our youngest learners. What if we simply included and supported EVERY child starting on day one of pre-school! What if we drew a simple line around all of our youngest learners and taught and supported them ALL together? 

This amazing professional development package is EVERYTHING you need to equip your early childhood providers to understand what inclusion looks like from the start. As a result of this PD, they will learn HOW to include every learner (even those with complex support needs) through co-teaching, supporting big emotions and embedding skills during play and SO much more!
