On October 23, Family Advocacy will facilitate ‘Inclusive Education: Front and Centre’ at New South Wales Parliament House to showcase practices that make teaching and learning accessible to all students.

Date: 23 October 2019
Time: 6:00 – 7:30pm
Venue: Jubilee Room, NSW Parliament House, 6 Macquarie Street, Sydney

The event seeks to highlight the need for systemic reform to urge the NSW education system to adopt genuine, evidence-based inclusive education practice.

The event will also screen ‘Al’s Story’, a 15 minute documentary on Al Graham’s inclusive education journey at Turramurra High.

Family Advocacy is inviting people to “come and show decision makers that people with disability and families in NSW feel passionate about children with disability having a valued place in the regular class at the local public school; in the #SameClassroom as their same aged peers, with the right supports in place, so they can have the same opportunity to reach their full potential.” The organisation is also encouraging people to invite their local MPs and request that they attend for additional impact.

Drinks and nibbles will be provided. The event is free but registrations are essential. Register here to secure your place.

Family Advocacy works with families to promote and defend the rights and interests of people with developmental disability.
