Early Childhood Education & Infant Development
SUPPORTING ABORIGINAL FAMILIES OF YOUNG CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES:
Respect, Healing, Dignity and Care.
July 8 – 15
The 2017 IECER Summer Institute will bring together ECED students, ECE & IDSC professionals, and others interested in early childhood and infant development, to explore the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Recommendations as Canada begins to celebrate 150 Years.
This institute will have Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal professionals come together, discuss their work in relation to Aboriginal families, and how the TRC recommendations will enrich work practices and policies. There will be a particular focus on Aboriginal children with special needs and Aboriginal children in the child welfare system.
