Back Up launches an inclusive education toolkit.
This free resource will provide free, online advice, tips and guidance
for spinal cord injured children and young people to ensure they have the opportunity to be fully included in all aspects of mainstream education
We want to promote the toolkit to a wide audience, including spinal cord injured young people and their families, spinal centres, related third sector organisations, and local and national government bodies.
Last week we held an event to launch the toolkit. The aim of the day was to raise the profile of the needs of spinal cord injured children and young people in school and to demonstrate how the toolkit can help meet those needs. Attendees fed back that is was:
“An excellent day. Good practical advice and suggestions to try out. Many thanks to all!”
“An excellent start to understanding the needs of spinal cord injured patient. A revelation by those who are affected by spinal cord injury on how they successfully overcame challenges”
The toolkit can be found on here
This toolkit comes at a time where inclusion in schools has been at a hot topic of conversation, see link for more information: http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/2012/may/24/academies-refusal-pupils-special-needs
