Welcoming children with disabilities into people & baby daycares
The meaning of inclusion is to allow children who need more support to benefit from specific care arrangements. Welcoming children with disabilities into people & baby daycares is part of a thoughtful and adapted educational proposal: motor disorders, autism or Down's syndrome ... each child is welcomed with their differences.
Organize well in advance the reception of children with disabilities
A meeting prior to the reception of the child makes it possible to create an Individualized Reception Plan (PAI). It is drawn up jointly with the parents, the management of the daycare, the daycare's doctor, as well as the attending physician. The PAI defines the guidelines of the protocol to be adopted on a daily basis to support the child but also of those guidelines to be put in place in case of emergency or crisis.
The team appoints a referral who can benefit from in-house training specific to the child's disability. The spaces are organized to promote movement of the child in the structure (in the event of motor disability) and access to games that correspond to their intellectual and cognitive development.
Provide an environment adapted to the development of children with disabilities
Hosting a child with a disability means offering him an environment where he can develop at his own pace and socialize. The daycare sets up activities that promote awareness and uses appropriate tools (pictogram, gestures, singing, etc.). This process encourages stimulation of the child and facilitates his integration into the group. And by explaining his disability and needs to other children in a simple way, natural empathy wins out and helping behaviors emerge.
The staff keep an up-to-date educational follow-up book for the child and transmit information to families on a daily basis: what has the child discovered, what relationship does he have with the group? Thanks to these transmission times, the child's progress is valued and the discussion is centered around his daily life in the facility.
Training to prepare professionals
Each year, many people & baby professionals are trained: motor, mental and sensory disabilities are addressed in order to allow them to adapt their posture, make educational proposals and adjust the environment to the specific needs of certain children. Theory, but also simulations and sharing experiences prepare participants for different situations.
Taught by 4 approved instructors within the framework of Enfance Pour Tous, the people & baby training organization, these sessions were set up following a growing demand from professionals: an internal study revealed that 40% of our structures welcome children requiring a PAI for a situation of handicap or chronic illness.
