A+ A-

The Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) was proud to have Shelley Moore join us for a keynote presentation on Inclusive Education, Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and Advocating for Inclusion in Today’s Classrooms and Schools.

Moore is a Canadian educator, author, and expert on special education who advocates for inclusive education. She seeks to reform Individual Education Programs to better suit the needs of individual students. Moore is the author of the book One Without the Other.

The session provided an understanding on how inclusion is shifting, using a strength-based lens to make space for all students’ diverse identities. Attendees dove into the research of inclusion, and reflected on what criteria we can use to guide our advocacy efforts, from kindergarten all the way through secondary school and beyond.

The event marked the second time Moore was able to present to the HWDSB community in 2022. Back in June, she joined us for an “Evolution of Inclusion” event, which was co-presented by Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board (HWCDSB).

Both sessions were a hit with attendees, and we hope to have Shelley Moore return to HWDSB in the near future. Check out some of the social media highlights below.
