People First.

As a future educator, advocacy is an important factor I must consider in empowering all of my students.

Inclusion of children with special needs and disabilities begins with adults who are respectful of all children’s rights to belong and participate fully in early care and education settings. All children have the right to dignity and respect and not to be judged by their special needs or disability. To ensure this right of respect, I will use People First Language.
