Collaboration is the Key to Inclusive and Adapted Programming: Why Community Programming Needs to be Inclusive AND Exclusive
Co-Presenters: Brandi Heather (Red Deer College), Rob Meckling (City of Red Deer) and Robyn Bagley (Athletic Therapist)
Sport works to improve the inclusion and well-being of persons with disabilities in two ways: 1) by changing what communities think and feel about persons with disabilities, and 2) by helping people with disabilities find their own potential through sport. This presentation looks at how consistently and collaboratively using these components – People, Process and Information – can help move your municipality into more inclusive programming.
