Brain-Based Inclusive Practice For Schools

An 8 week online professional development program for educators and practitioners that provides a greater understanding of vulnerable children and young people, and practical, evidence based solutions to create inclusive classrooms.


What makes our online professional development program different to others?

Our online Professional Development Program incorporates Neurodevelopment, Attachment, and Trauma Informed (NATI) principles, and therefore offers a unique approach to education, development and learning. These principles are incorporated across all aspects of the Professional Development Program, to enhance the program’s core content, and enable educators to work effectively with students who may have learning difficulties due to traumaimpacted, or there are developmental gap leading to vulnerability.

The Creating Inclusive Classrooms Program is very practical, it uses an authentic, genuine approach to creating an inclusive learning environment for all participants. Content is evidence based, and data informed, with a range of readings and materials available to supplement discussions and learning processes. Participants are encouraged to keep their students ‘in focus’ leading to a collaborative approach.

At the completion of the program, participants will have gained a deeper understanding of what creates vulnerability, a toolbox full of practical, evidence-based strategies and frameworks to take back to their school ecology, and into the classroom. The program runs for eight (8) weeks, we encourage the connection with other educators and practitioners to continue through participation in our online professional learning community, and access to renewed resources and materials over time.
