You have one or more children with atypical development (suspicion or diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder -ASD, Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder - ADHD, anxiety, sensory processing difficulties, twice exceptional - 2E) in your group? Their inclusion represents major challenges to your educators? They feel overwhelmed and discouraged because traditional methods don't seem to work with these children?
I have the pleasure to offer you a series of four practical workshops, specifically designed to respond to your needs.
The inclusion of a child with atypical development makes us worried because we are afraid of not being able to meet everyone's needs. This workshop offers you practical solutions and ready to use techniques to facilitate daily group management. We will review the most up to date best practices that promote participation within the group, and how to collaborate with parents.
We will learn how to adapt activities, facilitate transitions, and resolve conflicts amongst children. This workshop will offer you the essential knowledge necessary to ensure successful inclusion and to make sure that you feel competent and at ease in your role as an educator. And even more, to give you the incentive and the joy of welcoming atypical children in your group.
