January 11 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
- This event has passed.
Neurodiversity (Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia) is becoming much more recognized as a learning difference vs. a deficit in our ECE classrooms. This session will aim to create space for reflection and discussion anchored in respecting, honoring, and including neuro-diverse children. During our time together, we will share strategies and information on sensory integration and how directors/administrators can support educators in meeting the needs of all children. We will also learn through stories about local early childhood settings that have created cultures of inclusion. Lastly, we will explore through videos and reflective exercises how to really see children using a strengths-based approach.
This workshop is free thanks to the generous sponsorship by the Jefferson County Regional Collaborative through a grant from the Governor’s Office of Early Childhood.
