Partnering with Schools for Inclusion (Part 2 of 3)

In this second part of a 3-part series on partnering with schools for inclusion, we focus on conditions for inclusion.

Specifically, we explore the importance of the presumption of competence, an unrestricted rather than ‘least restrictive’ environment, social emotional learning for all, as well as universal design for learning.

The audience for this presentation is primarily parents and carers of Autistic children, though education professionals might also find the information relevant.

Note that this presentation will refer to Australian laws and to the specific Australian educational context.

Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.

The Reframing Autism team would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands on which we have the privilege to learn, work, and grow. Whilst we gather on many different parts of this Country, the RA team walk on the land of the Birpai, Awabakal, Wattamattagal, Whadjak, Amangu, Bunurong and Kaurna Yarta peoples.

We are committed to honouring the rich culture of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of this Country, and the diversity and learning opportunities with which they provide us. We extend our gratitude and respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and to all Elders past, present, and emerging, for their wisdom, their resilience, and for helping this Country to heal.
