Event Details

We here at Jane Norman College are doing a trial run of “our version” of The Human Library.  

The Human Library was started in Copenhagen, Denmark in2000. It aimed to address people’s prejudices by helping them to talk to those they may not typically meet.  The organization used a library analogy of lending people rather than books.  

Our guest this month will be Melissa Castonguay. Melissa is an Early Childhood Educator, a neurodiversity movement advocate, and the parent of a neurodivergent child. She is striving to inspire truly inclusive early learning for all children. She believes in meeting children where they are, accepting them for who they are, and supporting them in meeting their lifelong potential. Melissa is happy to share her personal experience as well as her wealth of knowledge regarding neurodiversity. She is willing to answer questions and she hoping to help build awareness and understanding of this important topic.
