Currently there is a 15 week program provided by the ministry of education to support the training of teachers about children with disabilities, in order to support inclusion.
Every Tuesday afternoon CIELO de Amor staff are joining 15 other local regular education teachers for this training. CIELO de Amor staff are able to learn and also contribute their experiences to the discussion.
It’s exciting to see the government put effort to support inclusion and we are so happy that we can contribute to this training locally, in a very hands on manner.
We had a VERY full week with our visiting therapists, Elaine Toper, OT, Jodi Oakerson, PT, Molly Osterland, OT, and student Kirah.
They gave a fabulous training on cerebral palsy and lifting and handling, to over 30 staff and families from La Concha and neighboring towns.
