Our Mission “To promote inclusive communities where all people belong”
Welcome to our award-winning website!
Designed for YOU! Parents, professionals, advocates, and self-advocates. Your suggestions, comments, corrections, and feedback are needed to make this all-volunteer website a more valuable resource for everyone! Instead of individuals trying to recreate the wheel, we can help each other build inclusive environments, by sharing experiences, strategies, resources, and problem-solving. We can work together to change policies and increase awareness. Let’s join together to make a difference!
Inclusion is a term commonly used in education discussions regarding placements for students with disabilities, but it has no legal definition.
In fact, it connotes a much larger global meaning of having an active social membership and a sense of belonging across all environments.
