Feedback from families and staff recently encouraged us to increase our social media presence. We have started this process by expanding our current Run/Walk Facebook page to become the KidsInclusive/EnfantsInclus page for our entire organization. We hope this allows for greater communication, accessibility and visibility between our clients, families, community partners and ourselves.
This page will be monitored casually throughout the work week. As always, we encourage you to reach out to your therapist privately for care related questions.
Please like and share our page and stay tuned for more content too!
Logan Stewart and Brooke McKillen recently had the opportunity to speak about their lives and experiences with the Provincial Advocate for Children and Youth, Irwin Elman and staff Sandy Wynia-Katz. Both Logan and Brooke were able to openly discuss their disability and their experiences both positive and negative.
November 20, 2014 marked the 25th anniversary of the signing of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). To celebrate this milestone, the Provincial Advocate for Children & Youth launched a “listening tour” which now takes place each year around the week of November 20th. During this year’s tour, Irwin Elman travelled to different communities (including ours) to ‘listen’ with the intention of developing a ‘”shadow report” created from the voices of youth in his mandate.
