Universal supports provide the best possible conditions to progressively develop a mindset in which staff and students are successful. Consistent language is paramount to promote and nurture a school culture that values and supports relationships and diversity. The International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) (WHO, 2001) defines participation as involvement in life situations affecting health and wellbeing. The child and youth version of ICF (ICF-CY) (WHO, 2007) provides an holistic perspective of barriers and facilitators for child functioning and engagement.
Cae will explore the interplay between the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) Framework, restorative practice and differentiated support for teachers and learners to become thoughtful, engaged and socially connected.
