Often in our lives as afterschool staff we face unusual challenges, and sometimes these moments can change the trajectory of our career path. When Kat started her career as an afterschool director, she had several of these moments when youth with significant disabilities wanted to join her program. Kat had no idea what inclusion was or how to support them. Kat will share stories of her journey from afterschool director to inclusion specialist, and some lessons learned along the way. This presentation will include an overview of the benefits of inclusive programs, explore the current trends in respectful language, and provide examples of true social inclusion in afterschool programs.
