Description

"Inclusion is not a strategy to help people fit into the systems and structures which exist in our societies; It is about transforming those systems and structures to make it better for everyone. Inclusion is about creating a better world for everyone."

–Diane Richler


Inclusion is becoming a value-driven, intentional focus for many international schools. To fully embrace the opportunities of inclusion, educators are realizing the benefit of broadening their pedagogical skill set so that they are prepared to serve the needs of all learners. While one may not aspire to a learning support teaching role, we can all benefit from better understanding the foundational practices employed by learning support specialists. In this workshop, participants will develop their inclusive toolbox and realize the immense satisfaction of investing in our diverse learners.

Who is it for?

  • Educators of any level who are interested in gaining strategies and skills for supporting diverse learners

  • Community members interested in exploring what inclusion means in today’s schools

  • People who feel inspired to advocate for inclusion within their school communities

  • Students 13 and older who are considering a career in learning support or who want to learn strategies for improving or deepening their own learning

What will you do?

  • Explore high-incidence needs present in school communities

  • Dive into the research behind evidence-based interventions

  • Engage in practical discussions of how interventions can be applied within a general education classroom

  • Explore different forms of data collection and how to best apply them

  • Work through developing an intervention plan for a student

What will you walk away with?

  • Awareness of high-incidence needs

  • Ability to access current peer-reviewed research and pull from it best practice

  • An understanding of how educators flexibly adapt to meet the needs of diverse learners

  • Practical knowledge of how to collect and utilize student data, both academic and behavioural

  • A simple framework for designing short term intervention plans

Erin Madonna

Currently, Erin is the Learning Support Specialist at Shekou International School in Shenzhen, China. Before moving to work internationally, she spent a decade teaching students with diverse needs in the small, but feisty, state of Delaware, USA. While a generalist in practice, Erin finds great joy in working with students who have emotional and behavioral needs as well as those with sensory integration needs. She utilizes many different pedagogical approaches and programs (multi-sensory, differentiation, Applied Behavior Analysis, Reading Horizons/Orton-Gillingham, mindfulness, TEACCH, PECS, social stories, Response to Intervention, Whole Brain, Responsive Classroom, Kagan Structures, Learning Focused, etc), blending the best parts of each to meet the unique needs of all learners. She is passionate about supporting students who benefit from a non-traditional approach to education and the teachers and families who guide their growth.
