Inclusive Education - From Promise to Practice

6 September 2016
09:00 am - 03:30 pm
Ryde-Eastwood Leagues Club - 117 Ryedale Rd, West Ryde NSW
After more than 40 years of practice and research, the full inclusion of students with intellectual and other disabilities in regular education classrooms continues to be problematic and often controversial. Attend this workshop to define and embark on quality inclusive schooling that benefits ALL children.

Presented by internationally acclaimed speakers Bruce Uditsky and Anne Hughson the workshop will:

  • Define what a quality inclusive education is and review the research that supports this.
  • Consider the questions of who belongs and who decides, to gain a deeper understanding of the effects of exclusionary practices in educational settings.
  • Provide an overview of the importance of children belonging.
  • Provide practical insights of how to facilitate effective communication and partnering between parents and educators.
  • Consider the impacts of inclusion on development of career opportunities for  future employment.
  • Address the role of special educators within the classroom and the school community.

Inclusive education is best achieved when parents and educators work in partnership. This workshop will provide opportunities for questions and discussions from both parents and educators.
