Join Monica Maddison for her online workshop “the weight of the words”!

Weight of Words is an introduction to philosophy, language, and how the words we choose impact the children in our care. We explore the social model of disability, growth vs deficit mindset, and harmful terminology. Participants learn that language is not simply descriptive, its preformative.

Facilitator(s): Monica Maddison
Monica Maddison is a Director of Specialized Education and Inclusion, former college instructor, and a professional speaker. She brings her thirteen years of experience and extensive education background to “educate the educator” on best practices for supporting and caring for neurodiverse learners. When she isn’t advocating for her students within the classroom, providing one-to-one therapy for home based clients, or public speaking across Canada, USA, and New Zealand, she’s a mother to three children herself. Monica uses real world explanations with actionable strategies within each session to guide educators through self reflection and greater understanding of all children. Her company, Bloom Behaviour, is creating a movement of inclusion driven practices for intentional educators – because as we already know; we’re better when we’re together.
