Special Education and Restorative Justice
August 1 @ 10:00 am
Restorative justice is increasingly applied in schools worldwide to manage classrooms and create inclusive, socially connected, and supportive learning environments for every student, including those with disabilities.. Restorative practices help students develop self-advocacy and social-emotional skills at the same time they are building academic competencies. This experiential workshop will help teachers, administrators, and special education staff explore the needs of students with disabilities, identify restorative applications for supporting students with disabilities and their families, and accommodate differences when circle-keeping.
Facilitated by: Mama Makini Niliwaambieni, Yazid Jackson, & Lisa Shaw, MS
