Support Education for All


Inclusive Education & Early Childhood Community of Practice:
Knowledge Sharing

Community of Practice Members discussed key topics they are interested in learning and sharing about during future Community of Practice sessions, including Universal Design for Learning (UDL), Teacher Training for Inclusive Education, Working with Families and Inclusive Early Childhood Development (ECD) services.  Members of the Community volunteered to organize presentations of those topics for future meetings. We are looking forward to learning more about how we can promote inclusive education and early childhood development practices into our advocacy!
