The Inclusive Resource Practice - Child and Family graduate certificate from Humber College is scheduled over two semesters starting each year in September and creates opportunities for graduates to gain employment working with children, youth and adults in a variety of employment settings. The academic courses and first field placement are offered in an online synchronous and asynchronous delivery format meaning that your learning experience is a blend of online classes facilitated by program faculty combined with self-guided student learning. The second field placement, situated in the second semester of the program is an onsite practicum at an external partner agency.
The program prepares you to collaborate with a community of professionals, individuals and families to navigate a range of services in order to support inclusion. Students will advance their knowledge and expertise in the field of inclusion and develop an inclusive philosophy that they can apply in a variety of employment situations.
Graduates gain specialized knowledge, skills and abilities to enter employment, ready to collaboratively support children and adults with diverse abilities/special needs/disabilities. They act from an inclusive philosophy to ensure children and adults with physical, intellectual, social, and emotional challenges benefit from full participation in daily life activities.

- communicative assistants and consultants
