Many community youth are eligible to get involved in 4-H to learn and grow. Every school, in every state, includes youth who have special needs. Join Oregon 4-H Program volunteers and staff on February 12. Be inspired by 4-H alum, Temple Grandin (Colorado State University) as she talks about her experience learning with autism. Then, with the help of an instructor from Kids Included Together (KIT), we will practice skills and gain confidence in working beside 4-H youth who have special needs, such as physical, social, or learning disabilities. Explore opportunities for working with a child’s family and school support systems. Understand strategies to recruit and engage youth with various levels of ability. Learn how to adapt 4-H activities and make accommodation for youth with special needs. After this Forum e-session, states will have access to many on-line learning modules (30-60 min each) on specific topics of their choice and individual consultations with KIT staff to address unique county and state needs. Great resources for the future!
