The society created the Education Inclusion Program as a lending resource that is accessible to any school and is free of charge. It was developed to promote and educate others about Autism Spectrum Disorder. With a focus on acceptance and understanding, it covers topics of understanding ASD, acceptance of differences, and how to adapt your environment to be inclusive of everyone’s needs. Since its conception, it has grown to a library of presentations that cover a range of topics for almost any organization, service provider, business, employer, and family wishing to learn more about ASD acceptance and accommodations.

Our school lending bins have been created for an intended audience of early entry to grade 6. Educators can request to borrow a bin for their class. The bin includes a collection of books, interactive material, and an informative slideshow. We have ensured that the bins have curriculum-related material that could be substituted for health or language arts items. Reading comprehension activities, novel study material, and critical thinking activities are just some of what you will find in this resource. We have also ensured the addition of the Leader in Me language to the slideshow content. It is a “win, win.” An extensive teacher recourse guide has been created for each bin, offering ideas for activities and group projects. Teachers could use as little or as much of this program as they like. The resource can be borrowed from the society office, with training provided if required or requested. A presentation to the intended audience is also available from our community development officer.

Are you a service provider or business looking to gain more knowledge or offer your staff a new professional development opportunity? Then, this program is also for you! Our Community Development Officer provides custom, interactive presentations and learning opportunities. This free resource can help your organization make that step to creating a more inclusive space. Find out how we can help you today.

We continue to grow and develop this resource to ensure we can unite all the pieces in the community.

We have continued the delivery of this program through funding provided by the Community Initiative Grant from the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. Kinette’s Club of Fort McMurray has generously donated one complete set of lending bins.
