Event description
We would like to invite members to register to attend Part Two of a 6-part Disability & Inclusion Education Webinar Series.

About this event

This second webinar in the series will be delivered by Colin Patton (Active Connections & Cara Tutor) and will include a panel discussion with Angelina Foley (Special Olympics Coach), Oisín Feery (Special Olympics Kayaking Medallist and Ambassador) and Sharron Feery (Women’s Paddling Ambassador and Special Olympics Coach). This webinar aims to address areas of overall awareness, discussions and information which will help members to understand the additional needs that people living with Autism may have, and how you can be a part of understanding and accommodating this in a paddling context. Please note that this is an interactive webinar and will include Breakout Rooms. The Webinar will be recorded and available to view at a later stage if you would prefer not to engage in breakout rooms or discussion.

The Webinars will take place each month with a new registration link. Each month a guest speaker will facilitate an interactive webinar on a new topic: Physical, Intellectual and Sensory Disabilities, Autism & Additional Needs, and an information webinar on pathways towards Special Olympics and Paralympics.

Please submit any questions you would like addressed in the panel discussion to Emer Carton: emer@canoe.ie to ensure your question is answered throughout the webinar. There will be limited time to address questions asked on the evening.

This Disability & Inclusion Education Series is for all members; however spaces will be limited so please register early
