Webinar: Achieving Inclusion

Join our friends at the Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin for the following webinar:

Achieving Inclusion: What Every Parent and Educator Should Know When Advocating for Students

Join us from the comfort of your computer on June 17 for a webinar with Dr. Christi Kasa!

What do you do when your school isn’t offering an inclusive placement? All students can be educated within the context of the general education setting with appropriate supports. This interactive session will provide strategies to parents and educators who wish to have students educated in the general education classroom, but have had limited success or are just beginning this journey. Our goal is to share specific strategies for working collaboratively with a school team to make inclusive education a reality.

When: Monday, June 17 at 12pm Noon
