| Foundations of Inclusion
Including children with disabilities in child and youth development programs can be very challenging, but nothing is more rewarding than witnessing a child make a friend, enjoy a game or experience an accomplishment. This highly-interactive workshop will allow participants to face the fears involved in inclusion (I don’t know what to do! I don’t know anything about that disability!) through activities designed to promote an understanding of inclusion and support children with disabilities.
| Respectful Accommodations
Making your program accessible to children with disabilities will require creative and responsive accommodations. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) addresses the necessity of making accommodations for children with disabilities so that they can participate in community programs. This workshop provides insight into what constitutes a "respectful accommodation." Specific examples of accommodations for children who have various types of disabilities are included.
| Pathway to Positive Behavior
Pathway to Positive Behavior addresses the fact that all children display some type of behavioral challenge. This workshop will focus on how to prevent negative behaviors before they occur and how to create environments that offer positive behavior support to children with behavioral challenges
| Partnering with Families
Children come to your program attached to a family unit. Learning to create partnerships with children’s families will help you provide the best service to all children. Learn to communicate successfully with parents, how to set up your relationship for success and what to do when challenges arise
