Kids with Autism – Best Practices for Inclusion

Thursday, January 8, 2015
1:00-2:00pm EST

Webinar Description: NJSACC continues it’s efforts for inclusion of children with disabilities in New Jersey’s out-of-school time programming, with this professional development webinar. Inclusion is more than letting children with disabilities into your afterschool program. The true essence of inclusion is the sense of belonging. This presentation will highlight important areas related to providing a welcoming and nurturing environment for children of all abilities. Although there is no standard methodology for inclusion, participants will discover some best practices of understanding and embracing differences, sharing strengths, guiding and adapting activities, supporting different levels of need and facilitating meaningful relationships. The webinar will provide strategies for educational supports, inclusive recreational activities and social interactions.

Presenters:
Lee McDermott Schaefer, Policy Director at NJSACC
The Statewide Network for New Jersey’s Afterschool Communities
Adrienne Robertiello, Autism Educator with the Children’s Specialized Hospital
