What's in a name?

What’s in a name? A webinar series by Ruth Whiteside of CEL&T

When talking about ‘special needs’ or ‘disabilities’, too often the words we use are related to a deficit model of our expectations. What if we could turn this around so that we operated from a strengths model instead? What would change in our schools? This series of webinars will explore current discourse and look for ways to respond positively to all children and young people in our mainstream classrooms.
