Knowledge about diversity is fundamental to effective inclusive practice. Ensuring each child starts school with a positive foundation of skills and knowledge is of paramount importance.
Through the exploration of individual needs profiles for the children in our care, we are best placed to understand how to design programs that ensure individual factors are consistently considered and planned for.
Inclusion, at its core needs to support children and families of all backgrounds and abilities to form friendships and a sense of belonging.
Skills developed within this program have a positive effect on inclusion and access. Educators will reflect and evaluate current teaching and learning programs by using evidence and data from their own observations and critical / professional reflections (behaviour analysis and action plan). Classroom routines will be examined to ensure that teaching and learning programs are thoughtfully and professionally planned and implemented with prevention practices at the forefront.
Identify potential barriers and solutions to access and inclusion of all children and families
Identify common ways in which different behaviour may be communicating needs from children with different abilities
Understand the vital importance of supporting children’s behaviour as a foundation of forming relationships
Promote ‘being’ in children from all backgrounds through respectful celebration of diversity in all forms
