There is a growing belief and body of research around the significant benefits of inclusive environments for the physical, behavioral and emotional development of ALL children, not just those with disabilities and special needs.
While many organizations want to promote inclusion, they lack an easy framework to implement the social and emotional learning needed to create a supportive environment for everyone.
Without clear guidance, children that see differences in others can retreat to a position of distrust or fear, leading to negative behaviors such as exclusion, meanness and bullying. Furthermore, the atmosphere of some organizations is impacted by the adults who act out-of-control without regard to the best interests of the children.
Wingman addresses these gaps and is designed to be used in a wide range of organizations, from our schools through dance, sports, recreation and beyond. Wingman is designed for all children to experience, no matter what their ability. The primary goal is for all children to feel accepted by recognizing their unique and individual strengths and boosting their self-confidence.
