A range of resources are available to support services to provide inclusive environments and programs for all children. Sometimes the most helpful resources are the ones that help us to reflect on our practice and support us to think differently.

Current resource topics include:

What is inclusion?, Working with Therapists, Reflective Practice, Guiding Children’s Behaviour, Working with Families, Practical Resources and Inclusion Matters Newsletters.

These resources include information, weblinks, checklists and templates.
