Join us for Defining the Problem: an online briefing ahead of the Thrive by Five Early Learning & Disability Symposium

I have read and agreed to the terms of the Privacy Policy, the Collection Statement and the website Terms and Conditions.

Join us for our online, pre-event briefing, “Defining the Problem why isn’t early education and care inclusive?” on Monday 3rd July to give input into and learn more about the upcoming Thrive by Five Early Learning and Disability Symposium.

The event will be hosted by disability rights advocate Elly Desmarchelier. Together with special guests Jay Weatherill (Director, Thrive By Five), Catherine Liddle (CEO – SNAICC), Isabella Fantasia (Divergent Bell), and Michaela Banks (General Manager – Two Way Street and parent with lived experience), we will explore why Australia needs a more inclusive and universally accessible Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) system that supports children with disability and development delays and how we can make that happen.

We will also get your input and feedback on a declaration that we will be presenting to key politicians and political decision-makers, which will outline what we want to see happen, to ensure our early education and care system is inclusive of all children – including those with disability, neurodiverse profiles and developmental vulnerabilities.

This online pre-event briefing is about ensuring the voices of people with disability and neurodiverse profiles and parents of children with disability and neurodiverse children are fed into the Thrive by Five Early Learning and Disability Symposium on 26th July. You’ll have a chance to hear from some incredible speakers, ask questions, and share your experiences with the early education and care system.
