Limitless: Effective Training Techniques For Staff Working With Individuals With Special Needs
This hands-on session provides concrete examples of how to successfully include participants of all abilities in your program. Through a re-examination of how recreation and children’s services professionals view the concept of “special needs”, this session is based on the philosophy that all individuals have needs, not just those individuals who may have a disability. The concept is that what is necessary for some is good for all. The session provides training activities to help empower your frontline staff to think outside of the box as they work to make your programs as inclusive, accessible and fun for all.
