This presentation aligns with the 2017 theme, "Still We Rise for Equity, Opportunity, and Inclusion", by developing a deep understanding of why inclusive education is important and how to create an inclusive school culture for all students, including students with significant disabilities. With a focus on students with complex needs, this interactive workshop teaches the importance of equity and opportunity while discussing five essential school pillars that are the foundation for creating an inclusive mindset for both students, families, and staff. The triangle of support, consisting of personal supports, instructional and assistive technology, and curricular accommodations and modifications will be explained in detail. Students have the right to a sense of belonging in their school environments and this session prepares participants to draft their own school-wide philosophy and pillars that embrace a free and appropriate education for all.
