I have been working specifically with individuals with disabilities (including autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Global Developmental Delays, and nonverbal to name a few) ranging from 3-18 years-old for over seven years and currently work in Inclusive Recreation where I create and implement fun recreational opportunities for members of my community who have disabilities, which is very important to me. Some of the recreation opportunities I have created are adapted camps, movement programs, art programs, inclusive holiday events, and sporting events. Additionally, in this position, I have also taught hundreds of staff how to accommodate, program plan, and support children with various exceptionalities. Furthermore, I am a certified educator in Canada with a Special Education Part 1 certification, a Masters in Child Study and Education, a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Studies and a minor in Psychology. I have learned extensively about disability and childhood development in all of these programs as well as how to appropriately accommodate and adapt programming and lessons for various needs. Lastly, I have had many experiences working in rehabilitation hospitals and Special Education classrooms where I worked hands-on teaching and creating programming and lessons that supported the various needs of my students who all had a range of disabilities.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
