INCLUSION 101: PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR ALL LEARNERS

Shana Green, Implementation Manager, CATCH Global Foundation
Monday, March 16 • 8:00 AM – 9:00 AM

Like all children, kids with intellectual disability (ID) love to move, play games and learn new skills. In fact, experiencing physical activity in social settings is a critical part of their maturation process and connects them to the broader community. During this session, afterschool instructors will learn about the different ID categories they may encounter in their work, common behavioral traits exhibited by kids with ID, and easy-to-use adaptation and reframing strategies for managing these traits during physical activity time. Participants will also learn about free online resources, including an Inclusion Guide and short training videos, that help to reinforce inclusion concepts and can be shared with their afterschool colleagues.
