5. Equity, Inclusion, cultural awareness

5.1. Erinoak Kids fits in to category B because they focus on modifying classrooms and providing tools and resources to help teachers/ ECEs work more effectively with students who have been diagnosed with autism, a hearing or visual impairment or a speech and language delay. I have worked with them personally when I was an ECE in a childcare centre. We had a child in our classroom who was diagnosed with autism and the worker would come in regularly and provide tools and techniques we could try for any issues we were having at the time. They would also suggest resources like pictorial schedules or fidget toys that would be helpful. They worked closely with parents to ensure that everyone who was involved with the child was on the same page.
