Filed Under (Uncategorized) by Estee on 06-11-2008

As part of our goal to give the tools for inclusion, Patrick Schwarz will be coming to Toronto this weekend. Please see the dates and locations below.

Also, we’re still improving this site. Stay tuned for archived posts from The Joy of Autism and things that are new!

1. Date: Sunday Nov. 9 at 7pm
Location: Zareinu Educational Centre:
7026 Bathurst Street, Thornhill
Ph: 905 738-5542
Topic: COLLABORATION: TEAM BUILDING, ACTIVE LISTENING AND PROBLEM-SOLVING
Collaborative schools utilize processes to promote successful
instructional teams with all members actively involved. Tools for
success include team building, active listening and problem-solving. In
this dynamic workshop, participants will learn about each of these
processes and interactive application exercises will illustrate how
they can be applied to participants’ own schools and individual learning
situations.

Time: 9:15- 12:30

Location: Paradise Convention Centre
7601 Jane Street (Jane & Hwy 7)

Topic:
UNIVERSAL DESIGN, ACCOMMODATIONS AND DIFFERENTIATION
Universal design is having curriculum planning, strategy and materials
in place in advance to meet the needs of all learners. Accommodations
are technology, materials, sequences and procedures to help a learner be
successful in the classroom. Differentiation is when all of these
strategies are applied to the instruction for all learners in the
classroom. In this session, planning processes and examples will be
provided and applied to participants’ classroom, teaching and learning
situations.
Suitable for grades 3-6

Topic: FROM DISABILITY TO POSSIBILITY KEYNOTE
Using real life stories – from womb to tomb – of individuals with
possibilities, Dr. Patrick Schwarz will illustrate what supports are
successful and what else is needed for effectiveness in education and
human services for all people. These compelling examples will motivate
participants to re-imagine and support individuals in new and inventive
ways. Be prepared for something fun and different!

About Me


ESTÉE KLAR

I’m a PhD candidate at York University, Critical Disability Studies, with a multi-disciplinary background in the arts as a curator and writer. I am the Founder of The Autism Acceptance Project (www.taaproject.com), and an enamoured mother of my only son who lives with the autism label. I like to write about our journey, critical issues regarding autism in the area of human rights, law, and social justice, as well as reflexive practices in (auto)ethnographic writing about autism.
