Conference Year: 

2019

Primary Speaker name: 

Other Speakers: 

The implicit and explicit biases of early childhood practitioners have consequences for young children’s developing identities and sense of belonging. The aim of the session is to build awareness and understanding of our own implicit biases related to disability and other forms of diversity and to challenge and change deficit-based assumptions. Participants will engage in courageous conversations about various forms of diversity and will practice reflecting and identifying biases. This interactive session will also provide a framework and strategies for practicing meaningful inclusion in a way that positively impacts the experiences of all children and sends a message about civil rights, human diversity, and justice.
