WHAT WILL BE COVERED?
Inclusive Schools for All Live Session: Dr. Julie Causton and Dr. Kristie Pretti-Frontczak will kick off the day with an upbeat and energizing welcome that provides the “why” behind inclusion as well as the “how.” Over 20 ways teams can work to create more inclusive schools will be shared.
On-Demand Sessions: Pick topics you are interested in and learn at your own pace. For example you can choose to learn from others with Down syndrome about how they were able to thrive in school and in life-inclusively. You can also choose from sessions created by family members, lawyers, teachers, and administrators.
Supporting Students with Challenging Behavior Live Breakout Sessions: Do you have a child in your life who can challenge you? These two segments on behavior are meant to give you the support, skills, and strategies to move from behavior to belonging. Julie and Kristie will help you with not only your mindset about behavior, but also share very useful tips and tricks for helping each situation become a win-win.
From Behavior to Belonging: Dr. Julie Causton presents a new way to view behavior in the inclusive setting. Rather than a traditional approach, she shares effective behavioral strategies grounded in a foundation of love and respect.
Stress Detectives and Safe Harbors: Dr. Kristie Pretti-Frontczak presents a framework for ensuring secure attachments and helping children learn how to self-regulate. Strategies for supporting children who are neurodiverse and how to ensure all children feel safe, seen, and soothed will be shared.
How to Advocate for Inclusion Live Session: Special Education Lawyer Pat Radel shares legal myths of inclusion for both families and educators.
Your Schools IQ- Inclusion Quotient Closing Session: Here we reveal a new metric when looking at schools to help them become even more inclusive. Instead of focusing on a students IQ- let’s reframe this work and look at the school’s IQ (inclusion quotient).
