Supporting One, Supporting All: Collaborative support models for inclusive classrooms

In this session, we will look at how the goals of inclusion have continued to shift and evolve, as we learn more about diversity and identity. The inclusive planning process is aiming to situate Disability as an identity, not a deficit, and so to determine what supports and strategies students require, teams are shifting to look at needs, instead of disabilities, as a reference point. In this way, planning for inclusive classrooms can be universal, and anticipate needs of everyone in a community. Participants will reflect on their own contexts and look at how we can plan for a student with a disability, in ways that can support many students in a classroom.
