Join us tomorrow (Monday) for a Zoom conversation at 6pm Paris time, with Paula Madison, author, producer, and media entrepreneur, as we talk about how she left an executive position at NBCUniversal to pursue a life-long passion to go in search of her grandfather, a Chinese merchant who settled in Jamaica.

We will talk about how her decision was anything but rash, and how we can plan and pursue our dream projects. We will also touch on life and work balance, and the importance of including diverse women's voices and experience.

"All children can learn, but all children learn differently. Every child should attend mainstream school in a common learning environment with their same-age peers regardless of perceived ability or level of disability. All children benefit from inclusive education because all children belong."

Are you a parent facing concerns about your child’s development? Learning can be scary and confusing; doing it in a country known for its bureaucracy and administrative maze of paperwork can be overwhelming.

France has made improvements over the past 15 years since the loi de 2005 affirmed that all children have the right to receive an education and that parents have the right to be involved in developing educational plans. Learn more in our latest Education Insights blog post at www.aaweparis.org/2021/09/07/where-to-turn-when-you-suspect-your-child-needs-support-or-evaluation/ written by AAWE member Jill Clément.

Jill has lived in France since 2011, working in international schools supporting children with special needs and training teachers on inclusive practices. She has a BS in psychology and education and an MA in child development with a focus in clinical developmental psychology.
