      Thanks for the invitation to this discussion, inclusion is a passion of mine being a parent of a child with diverse needs and also working in Playcentre for the last 20 years I have worked through processes of support regularly directly with families over this time.

      As a mother of 6 completely different children except that they are all girls I have a wide range of uniqueness in our whanau.

      Inclusion isn't just about support for children with extra learning needs its about children as a whole.

      I would love to engage in this discussion and share with you thoughts from the perspective as a parent as well as an educator,I am also very keen to hear other peoples thoughts and views and strategies to support inclusion.

      Great conversations coming !

        Kia ora Pip, thank you for opening up as a parent, all of sudden 'things get personal' when it involves our own children. frown Wow 6 children, you must be one busy mum!

        The team who have worked on the Inclusive Education website have done a lot of research and pulled together some fantastic ideas/examples of practitioners who have successfully modelled strategies to create an accessible curriculum for their children. You might also like the summary updates in this VLN post, Enabling e-Learning FORUM: Snapshots of Universal Design for Learning.

        On a personal level, we have children and stepchildren all very different (quirky) and one struggling as a highly functioning aspergers girl who left school at 15yrs. The last explanation might sound 'normal', but it's a really sad and complicated story. Further complicated by misinformation and misguided support. The more we share effective theories, ideas, strategies and frameworks to help with these strategies - the better.

        I'd love for you to start the ball rolling in a new discussion thread Pip, just click on the green create button and away you go. 

        Maybe you could share one story that strikes a chord for you and how this story has played out and why. You never know how many other people have similar stories to share... laugh
