Autism 30 February 2017 Newsletter
I remember what my grade 8 French teacher told me a very long time ago. “If you want to change a society's thinking, change the educational system and within 20 years you’ll have a society more aligned with that thinking”. February is Inclusive Education Month and I believe that we are fortunate to be in a province where that is the case, even if there needs much improvement to the system. Children are naturally accepting and open. It’s nice when we can bring our children to schools where they are valued members. This will ultimately lead to a world where they are valued and part of that society, naturally.
Quote of the month:“What I myself and others who have benefited from inclusion have gained is more self-determination and a confidence boost with being included in the classroom, campus, and community.”
