Our Guest Trainer for this Curiosity Circle is Kerry Murphy.
The Curiosity Circle on Ableism in Early Years is a thought-provoking and interactive session designed to raise awareness and foster understanding of ableism in educational settings. Ableism refers to discrimination and prejudice against individuals with disabilities, often leading to exclusion and unequal treatment. During this session, participants will engage in open discussions to explore the concept of ableism and gain insight into how it manifests within our practice. Through examining practical examples, participants will develop a deeper understanding of the impact of ableism on neurodivergent and disabled children. You will have an opportunity to ask questions, and to consider the opportunities and challenges of anti-ableist practice.
To encourage active learning and critical thinking, the course will include case studies that challenge participants to reflect on their current practices and identify potential instances of ableism in their classrooms or learning environments. Group discussions will revolve around ways to adapt and modify existing practices to be more inclusive and affirming of neurodiversity. Participants will be guided by the Neurodiversity Affirming Zones of Practice, a framework designed to promote a positive and supportive learning environment for all children. By using these zones as a reference, participants will collaboratively explore strategies to create inclusive spaces that celebrate diversity, embrace individual needs, and promote the well-being and development of every child.
