The Power of Inclusion: 2024 Webinar Series

April 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

As the parent of a child with a disability I have witnessed how powerful inclusion can be for everyone involved. It is powerful for both the person with a disability and those in the community around them. It is important that all of us include those who are different than us to have a more fulfilling community. I have shared some of my story in a TEDx talk that can be found on YouTube.

Those students who qualify for special education under the category of multiple disabilities are often sent down a path of being segregated from their peers from the beginning. The more people who know the importance of inclusion for these students the more likely they will be included in the community both in school and later in life.

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Define inclusion
  • List the benefits of inclusion
  • Identify ways that can include those around them
  • Learn the importance of inclusion and how they can help
