Create a classroom environment where students feel safe making mistakes, taking risks and trying new things.

This website is dedicated to promoting inclusive schooling and exploring positive ways of supporting students with autism and other disabilities. Most of my work involves collaborating with schools to create environments, lessons, and experiences that are inclusive, respectful, and accessible for all learners.


Day 3: Conference registration

Posted on December 03, 2014 in News

So many great conferences, so little money! Are you looking for a great gift to support the inclusion-loving educator or advocate in your life? Consider giving him or her registration to a great inclusion-themed conference. There are many to choose from including the one I help to organize each year—Illinois Includes. We are not accepting registrations yet, but you could create and hand out your own registration “gift certificates” to be used when registration opens in January!


Or you could pick a conference that is closer to your area. Near or in Colorado? Purchase a registration for PEAK Parent Center’s upcoming February conference. Or if you are in Pennsylvania, check out the website of The Peal Center for details on their inclusion conference scheduled for March 25th. Inclusion conferences are also happening in Texas, New Jersey, Wisconsin, and Indiana next year.

Have I missed some? Add a comment and let me know!

    We gave away a ‘gift certificate’ for a ticket to the Illinois Includes conference to a lucky teacher at a local school that participated in our organization’s annual walk fundraising event. Each school that participated got an entry into a raffle for a gift certificate to attend! Hopefully the school district will send another teacher with him/her! ;>D
