Workshop Description

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA, 1990) requires that out-of-school time programs are Accessible to children with and without disabilities. Making your program accessible to all requires creative and responsive accommodations. This full day session features skill-building workshops that start with introducing the principles of inclusion, followed by how to develop respectful accommodations for children with diverse needs. The session continues with supporting behavior and strategies for collaborating with parents and school personnel. KIT’s Opening Doors to Inclusive Programs Series helps ensure simple and appropriate supports are in place for children and offers tools for the providers who work with them. Participants will gain specific examples of accommodations for children with various types of disabilities and learn how to prevent negative behaviors before they occur. This workshop addresses how to create inclusive, supportive environments and techniques to communicate successfully with parents. Participants will also join in a facilitated discussion to explore issues related to inclusion in their unique settings.

This project is funded in part with federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act,
as amended by No Child Left Behind, Title IV, Part B, 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) grant funds
through a cooperative grant agreement with the New Jersey Department of Education.
