PRESENTATION TITLE:

Inclusion – The Musical!

ABSTRACT:

Written and Performed by Tiana Dovecer, Brianna Howie & Dr Red Ruby Scarlet 

(An Exploring Tree Early Learning Professional Development Initiative…)  

This musical is the story of two early childhood educators who are employed at Exploring Tree Early Learning. As diagnosed neurodivergent women, this musical is a fabulous expression of their life experiences in educational settings. With all original music, the songs will open your heart, invite you to reach for reflection about people’s experiences of neurodiversity, give you insights to moments of exclusion and teach you lots and lots and lots about inclusion. Be prepared to laugh, cry, sing, clap, connect and reflect on the beautiful experience of what it means to be alive – especially after you meet the SuperStars…
