The Inclusion Ambassadors think that good communication is important.
A big part of this is using the right language to show understanding and respect. This can help people feel more involved, improve understanding and improve learning.
They think people should take the time to understand young people with additional support needs as individuals. This would then help everyone understand more about how people want to be communicated with differently.
One Ambassador shared how standing with their arms crossed helps them feel less nervous but that they can be seen as “standoffish” and “rude”. As they put it, young people are “not being rude on purpose, expression is different for everyone”.
