Parent Information Night – How does inclusive education work? How can classrooms be designed to address the needs of all learners? How are classrooms designed to be inclusive and welcoming for all learners? What does inclusive programming look like for my student?

These questions will be addressed to help parents understand the role of universal educational interventions that support all students in a classroom. The Universal Design for Learning model is based on an architectural term, applied to designing learning environments that are accessible to all learners.

The Complete Classroom: Combining Challenge and Inclusion is a two-hour interactive workshop for parents. Come and find out what Universal Design for Learning is all about, and what role parents and community members can play in working towards successfully inclusive schools.

All Parents and Community Members with an interest in inclusion and universal design for learning are welcome.
