Inclusion Training Opportunities

We have three training session options: connect, grow, and belong. 

CONNECT Inclusion Training (Self-Led Online)

Connect provides the foundation of understanding through 5 modules: inclusion, accessibility, communication, positive behaviour support, and sensory systems.

Connect training is completed through an e-learning platform where learners can complete the modules at their own pace. Learners will receive a completion certificate after each module and at the end of the course. Each individual will need a personal account to complete the training.


GROW Inclusion Training (Live Facilitation)

Grow is a group-based training that aims to challenge attendee’s own biases.

Grow aims to challenge attendee’s own biases and provides other practical strategies that build off from the Connect training. This training has 4 modules: empathy, ableism, intersectionality, adaptations and includes case studies to put your knowledge into practice.

$175/person $1500 for a group of 10

Who Can Participate?
