Inclusive education is a priority for everyone, but how do we design a program that truly meets the individual needs of each student without getting caught up in the “geography” of WHERE students are learning each moment of the day. communication and advocacy as you come together with your district team to plan for your child's educational needs. In this workshop, participants will learn how to plan for the individual needs of students through a protocol-driven process that examines the individual needs of each student and supports with the design of a program that meets their specific needs.
