Getting Ready for Inclusion Today (GRIT)
The GRIT Program is a non-profit early education program providing family centred and inclusive learning experiences to support the meaningful participation of children in home, community and school. Funded by Alberta Education and Alberta Human Services, GRIT is a recognized leader in supporting families and community partners to ensure all children are fully included. Lead by a team of professionals and guided by family priorities, an individualized educational program plan is developed for each child that focuses on enhancing strengths and skills within their daily routines and interests. Family and community partner(s) are also provided with the resources and strategies they need to build on a child’s unique learning to ensure active and valued participation in everyday activities.
