With Educator and Author Dr Ruth Wilson
Join us to learn from Dr. Ruth Wilson as she shares about her inspiring book, ‘Naturally Inclusive: Engaging Children of All Abilities Outdoors’.

Ruth has a doctorate in early childhood and elementary education and a master’s degree in special education. Dr. Wilson taught at the university level for over 14 years, including ten years at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. Professionally, her primary areas of interest are early childhood environmental education and peace education. Much of Ruth’s work focuses on the holistic development of children, with an emphasis on connections between body, mind, and spirit. She works as an educational consultant and curriculum writer with special expertise in the area of early childhood environmental education and other initiatives in connecting young children with nature.

In this book and workshop explore the great potential of connecting young children with special needs to the natural world. Naturally Inclusive is an essential guide for creating inclusive nature-based play spaces and programs that connect every child to nature. It reminds us that nature is both an exemplar of diversity and a catalyst for inclusion.

Drawing on her knowledge of research and her decades of work with children in nature, she weaves together advice, real-life examples, and testimonies from educators and families on the healing, nurturing power of nature in the lives of young children with diverse abilities.
