Full course description
This 90-minute webinar is for educators and service leaders who work in school age care settings. Participants will learn about what inclusion is and their legal and ethical obligations related to the inclusion of children with disabilities or delays in outside of school hours care services. Barriers to access and potential solutions to these barriers will be presented. Participants will consider what participation in school age care settings looks like in practice and will be provided with information about how they can collaborate with others and structure their environment to support the participation of all children. Case study examples will be used throughout, and the positive outcomes of inclusion for different community members will be presented.
