Program Information

Inclusion Outreach is an outreach service mandated to assist schools throughout British Columbia, in meeting the educational needs of students with multiple severe physical and cognitive disabilities. A team, consisting of a teacher, occupational therapist, physiotherapist, and speech-language pathologist provide support through a variety of services.

Philosophy

The philosophical foundation that guides our practice is based on the belief that educational programs for students with disabilities must enhance their current and future quality of life. Learning objectives must be functional, meaningful and address presence, choice, competence, respect, and inclusion as a framework for planning and accountability in a student’s school program.


Focus

The focus of this program is two-fold:

  1. Provision of information and strategies specific to the student with multiple severe disabilities to maximize his/her learning
  2. Provision of information, inservice and teaching strategies to support the classroom teacher and support team to meet the educational needs of the student with multiple severe disabilities.
