We know providing inclusive educational opportunities are best practice for all students, but it can be challenging for school teams to make inclusion meaningful for students with extensive support needs. How can we make sure our students with the highest needs are able to access the rich educational and social opportunities in the gen ed classroom? How can we make sure these students are included in a way that highlights their abilities? This presentation will showcase practical strategies and tools for including students in classrooms from kindergarten through 12th grade. Tips and considerations for students that use AAC or AT embedded throughout. No experience in inclusion needed, we’ll start from square one and work up!
