Join us on Wednesday May 19th at 10 am  for: Inclusive Education Film Series facilitated by Ben Postmus, Karen Speijer, and Rachel Skidmore

Inclusion BC and the Canadian Institute for Inclusion and Citizenship (CIIC) partnered to create four short films to raise awareness about the exclusion of students with developmental disabilities and to offer key information and possible pathways to success for students, families, and schools. They convened focus groups that included former students, families, educators, Indigenous people, professionals, and community organizations to co-create the vision for these films. Drawing on their lived experiences, participants shared stories and offered examples of the issues and the barriers they face.

The four films include:
Film 1: Exercising Self Determination in our Schools
Film 2: Getting Ready to Work in our Schools
Film 3: Reframing Challenging Behaviour in our Schools
Film 4: Indigeneity and Disability in our Schools
We will view the four short films together and have a moderated meaningful discussion about the content, issues, and solutions these four films cover.
