    Free webinars around inclusion in sport and physical activity | Nasen

    Inclusion 2024 Live is an interactive online week of free to access Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Inclusion webinars from the Youth Sport Trust.

    Youth Sport Trust is a consortium partner of Whole School SEND. The week provides the opportunity for teachers, school staff, community providers and sports organisations to listen to and learn from experienced practitioners and young people about their experience and research around inclusion in sport and physical activity.

    With nearly 400,000 young people having an Education Health Care Plan and over 1 million young people receiving SEN support in England, there has never been a more important time to show the importance and positive impact being active has for SEND young people.

    The webinars take place across the week beginning the 29 January 2024.

    New resource – Deafness and me: A toolkit for early years practitioners

    by Hannah Richardson -

    This Early Years In Mind resource has been written by the National Deaf Children’s Society. 
     
    This toolkit builds understanding of the barriers that deaf children may experience in early years settings and provides information and activities to create positive mental health. 

    Deaf babies and children face a unique set of barriers to accessing communication and language, which can directly impact their relationship with others, their learning and their mental health and well-being. Providing tailored support to them, as well as their non-deaf peers, can build the foundations for good emotional health and mental health.

    Valuing Difference: Understanding the Need for Disability Equality


    YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6rBuSZoSu8

    While linked to the current UK Disability History Month (UK Disability History Month – 16 November – 16 December (ukdhm.org)), some of this relatively short video raises some interesting points and ways of talking and thinking about disability, barriers and impairments, and disability as a social construct. Aspects might be useful in your work or for further exploration.
