All children have the right to be included in an ECEC service. But what does inclusion really mean, and what types of support can you provide to help ensure that every child participates in a meaningful way? Join Margaret Smith for discussion and practical examples around:
- the differences between inclusion and integration
- making necessary adaptations to support all children’s meaningful participation
- enhancing the experiences of ECEC for all children through: inclusive group and meal times; developing functional and social play skills; and supporting children to make routine transitions.
Margaret Smith has many years of teaching experience in ECEC settings, early childhood intervention, special education consultancy and inclusion support. Margaret has been an active member of the NSW/ACT Inclusion Support Agency Alliance and is a past president of Early Childhood Intervention Australia (NSW Chapter).
