Meaningful responses to complex behaviour in an inclusive educational environment

This conference is about educational challenges. How do
we deal with all the different needs we come across in our
classrooms? How can we limit the exclusion of children who
have educational needs that require educational responses
that are above and beyond our expertise? How do we deal
with high potential learners at the same time when we have
to deal with children who experience learning difficulties?
How do we find ways to deal with the educational needs of
students who are twice exceptional and at the same time,
have eyes for those children who have experienced trauma in
their lives?
This conference is about good practices. We take on a
solution-focused approach and share what works in day to
day practice. We are challenging delegates to participate in
discussions and share their knowledge and expertise. The
broad spectrum of topics offered ensures that every delegate
will feel challenged.
