Teaching about Special Needs and Inclusion

Recently, every teacher in our school was asked to teach an SPHE lesson based on 'Inclusion' in order to highlight to our pupils the importance of including all children (in particular those with Special Needs) in their play. As this was a slightly sensitive topic to cover with a class (especially a senior class), I headed online to search for resources and ideas on how to approach the topic. Unfortunately I found it difficult to find anything usable! Eventually after a lot of searching, I was inspired by some of the activities discussed here to create the following PowerPoint on 'Disabilities and Inclusion' (it took 2 sessions to complete the topic).

You can download the PowerPoint from Slideshare (it's free to become a member) or from Dropbox.

You can download the Celebrity Profile activity sheet here.

You can find the banner I used to display the children's celebrity profiles on Twinkl here.

Don't forget to leave a comment below if you have any other ideas for teaching this topic to a class!
