Join Shelley Moore, teacher and international speaker, for a refreshingly honest look at inclusion in schools.

This full-day conference will provide practical strategies and inspiration for anyone who works with students.

Morning Session: Inclusive Education: Who, What, Where, When, Why?!

This session will deconstruct what inclusive education means in today’s classrooms and schools. We will discuss common misunderstandings and myths, and finish with ideas for building inclusive learning communities that benefit everyone.

Afternoon Session: Inclusive Education: Looking at students from a strength-based perspective

This session will look at how planning models are moving away from deficit-based frameworks to plans that include students’ strengths and abilities. We will discuss evidence-based practices and strategies for ways strength-based perspectives can guide program planning and focus on balance and growth, rather than retrofitting and standardization.
