Incorporate cool down or relaxation activities into the school day (e.g., yoga, deep breathing).

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.


“Don’t We Already Do Inclusion?” Planning Tool

Posted on June 27, 2020 in News

Don't We Already Do Inclusion?I have been having so much fun working virtually with book clubs this summer—it has helped me to connect with so many of you in a personal way. To keep the fun moving forward and to provide inclusion energy and support for your inclusive activities, I wanted to share a handout that I’ve been using with study groups, book clubs, and steering committees who are using “Don’t We Already Do Inclusion”: 100 Ideas for Improving Inclusive Schools as a planning tool.

If you are using Don’t We Already Do Inclusion? with your group, you can use this template to choose which pieces of your model you want to target for improvement. A hundred is a lot of ideas to consider all at once, so I suggest picking a few ideas from each section of the book, working on those ideas as goals and then choosing new ideas once you have met those goals.

And don’t worry if you are interested in learning more about the process or the book, but don’t have a group—I am starting one next week on my Facebook page! I will be posting weekly reading “assignments” and I’ll answer questions and provide additional resources once a week. See my FB page for more details. Our first session will be Wednesday, July 8th– join me!
