Event description

Inclusion and belonging in the local school- The parent tool-kit: UPDATED FOR 2024!

Face to face workshop: Wednesday 12th June 2024

Inclusion in the regular local school of children with disability has been possible for decades. It is a human right; supported by evidence and supported by Queensland’s Inclusive Education policy. But achieving inclusion for all children is still not simple and straightforward! The role of a parent in working with their child's school for good inclusion is crucial. 

This workshop will cover:

  • Knowing your child’s gifts and setting a vision for inclusion success 
  • Embracing your role as an advocate 
  • What authentic inclusion in the regular class looks like 
  • Education laws, policies and supports 
  • Speaking positively and confidently to work collaboratively with the school
  • Advocacy tips to stay strong and effective

Who should attend?
Parents and carers of school-aged children (Prep to Year 12) with disability. Parents and carers of younger children who are starting to think about/prepare for the school years are also encouraged to attend – it is never too early to start planning for inclusion.

    This free face-to-face workshop will be delivered by CRU facilitators passionate about inclusive education and experienced in advocating for inclusion.
