Program information


The Disability Inclusion Dance Workshop for Teachers is a professional development program aimed at developing teachers skills in the creative and performing arts for students with disability. The course focuses on providing teachers with creative and fun classroom activities using dance, movement and story whilst recognising and responding to the individualised learning and support needs of students whose disability impacts their learning.
 
This is an interactive and engaging program for educators, delivered by industry specialists in partnership with the Department of Education Arts Unit. 
 
The course is suitable for teachers and support staff who have one or more students with disability. The professional development program is open to teachers, education and support staff from both government and non-government schools.
