TORONTO, Feb. 14 /CNW/ As part of the country's Inclusive Education Week,
Community Living Toronto will be celebrating the occasion by playing
Spinclusion in over 30 classrooms in Toronto during the week of February 18.
Spinclusion is an interactive board game which promotes acceptance and
respect for people with different needs and abilities. Customized for children
of all ages, it challenges them to come up with solutions to various issues,
including cultural differences, physical adversities and intellectual
disabilities. Children work in a group setting to figure out solutions to
questions such as:
"Can you think of a time when you were excluded?"
"Your friend breaks his leg. How can you help him make life at school
easier?" "Someone in you class has epilepsy and has a seizure. How would
you react if you saw this happen?"
Spinclusion will be played in over 30 classrooms across Toronto starting
February 19. For information on scheduled sessions, please visit the MEDIA
