In this ECE workshop, early childhood educators explore their knowledge and experience of supporting children with exceptional needs. The workshop includes a general review about children with exceptionalities, information about what is involved with a child receiving an assessment and/or diagnosis and suggestions for ways ECEs can strengthen their day to day approach related to working with children (and their families) with exceptional needs.

Participants learn to identify ways to make their approach more supportive and early learning environments more accessible for children with ADHD, Autism, Behavioural Disorders and Physical Disabilities.

Testimonials from Educators About this ECE Workshop and ECE Workshops!
“I think that this was a very valuable professional development experience, especially for any beginners that do not have any previous foundation of working with children who have exceptionalities. It provides a good base and allows you to dive into information and then have your knowledge tested. The online experience is very well organized and was seamless as you moved from one area to the next. I was able to complete it on my own time, and did not feel rushed, something that is so important for us busy educators!” ~ Shawna Wylie, RECE
I have taken 2 other courses with 45Conversations and so far this one was my favorite. I love the videos that were included, and the information provided was put together well. All of the information in this course can be put to use in your classroom right away. ~ Nikki Shaver, Early Childhood Educator
“In this workshop I learned a great deal about the system of referrals for children with special needs. I also learned why the system of referrals is very slow and sometimes children with special needs and their families cannot access it at all. I learned about what happens to a child with special needs when they reach the Public education system without a diagnosis or the intervention they need. I learned new techniques for working with children with special needs in the classroom. I recommend this workshop. It touches on many different aspects or working with children with special needs.” ~ Nancy Malone
“I enjoyed this workshop. I like the online format, that I can complete in my own time. It is well organized. I look forward to take another workshop – I’m thinking of the Montessori one.” ~ Terry Breck

This was my first ever ONLINE workshop, I was a little hesitant because i thought it was going to be just videos after videos. This was not the case- it was nicely laid out in a way that was easy to follow, the questions were to the point and actually about what you just learned, i got some very good points and tips that i will be taking on with me. The videos in Part 3 were picked perfectly even if you think you know some stuff about people living with disabilities, the videos just opened my eyes even more. ~ Nicole Dunlop
I really enjoyed this workshop. This online workshop is very easy to access, it goes at your own pace which is awesome and that you can go back and review the materials as many times as you want. It is also presented very clearly, each task and videos are loaded with no problems, and the quality is good too. ~ Xintong Wang
