How to create inclusive play environments for children with special needs

Are you an early childhood educator, teacher or caregiver trying to create an inclusive learning and play environment that supports children with special needs and developmental delays?


In this 2 hour webinar recording I chat about my top inclusion strategies. These strategies are designed to empower you in supporting children who may find transitions, trying new activities, persisting at challenging tasks, engaging in group activities, sharing, waiting their turn, and regulating their emotions and impulses particularly challenging. 

All who register receive the autism visual resources package in pdf printable format. 


This two hour workshop is full of insights, discussions, and practical strategies that you can implement immediately to create a more inclusive and supportive learning environment.
