Let’s keep the conversation going! The webinar will now be followed by a two week long moderated e-discussion on the ARNEC Facebook group (29 April – 13 May 2017) https://www.facebook.com/groups/317858851746511/.
April is Autism Acceptance Month. In the past decade, the number of children diagnosed with autism increased rapidly around the world. While scientists and researchers still work hard to find the cause of autism and the ever increasing prevalence, in the field, practitioners and educators also work hard to keep children with autism in their “least restrictive environment”, which for many means an inclusive classroom. Unfortunately, both autism and inclusion are both relatively new concepts in education locally and regionally. The presenter will be sharing her knowledge about what autism is and how to make an inclusive early years classroom possible.
Please do share this webinar announcement widely with your networks,
contacts and colleagues. A recording of the webinar will also be made
available via www.arnec.net
