Inclusion Base Camp with Kat King

Inclusion Base Camp Cohort will provide an opportunity for the expanded learning program staff to build confidence and capacity to successfully and meaningfully include children and youth with disabilities or additional needs. In this cohort, we will create a cohesive vision of inclusion and behavior support, enhance our understanding of general behavior challenges, identify supports and resources available, explore inclusive best practices and necessary supports for youth with more complex inclusion needs using a strength-based approach, and dive into methods to foster positive family relationships and communication to support inclusion. Read FLYER HERE  for more information about how Participants will learn and discuss with peers in these 6 sessions:

  • Inclusion and Belonging
  • Powerful Partnerships for an Inclusive Afterschool Program
  • Understanding the “Why” Behind Behavior
  • Respectful Accommodations
  • Creating Caring Spaces by Understanding Trauma
  • Designing Inclusive Expanded Learning Programs
