About

Designed for classroom teachers, special needs teachers and coordinators, and Principals from mainstreams schools. 

 

Why?

Today’s push for inclusive education revolves around ensuring full inclusion of all children, where no child is segregated in education. Special Needs and Inclusion Conference (SNIC) brings you leading minds from across the country as well as overseas to discuss building an inclusive education model, utilising technologies and embedding a variety of supports to better inspire, empower and prepare your students for life.

SNIC is designed to help K-12 teachers, SENCOs and leaders from mainstream schools who are searching for ideas to integrate and support children with learning difficulties and disabilities such as Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, Auditory Processing Disorder, Behavioural Issues, Gifted Children and others.

Delegates will take away innovative, proven and practical ideas that can be easily implemented in the classroom and will significantly upgrade students learning capacities and outcomes. Learn how to harness the potential of existing inclusive frameworks, special needs technologies and explore future possibilities.
