Tools for Inclusion

What is inclusion?  How do you really do that in your classroom? Come to put some tools in your toolbox. As our teaching practice is ever-evolving, so are the ideas and tools surrounding inclusion. Using the principles of the Low Arousal Approach, Collaborative Proactive-style Solutions and Natural Play Therapy, leave this session with an understanding of the hows, the whys, and how to address the what if's of inclusion along with the confidence to apply them in your classroom on Monday.

Be prepared to move around and talk to the person beside you as part of this workshop.
