“This is Ah. maz. ing!”
Looking for the most fabulous professional development on diversity, equity, and inclusion? PD that is ready NOW! Ready for you and everyone in your district?
We’ve been working hard to make sure you have professional development “ready, set, done” for the year. And for a fraction of the price you’d pay to fly in one expert for one talk.
✔️ What if you could have a library of PD resources that you could access anytime, anywhere?
✔️ What if you could get immediate access to presentations from inclusive experts, without having to pay their travel fees or coordinate schedules?
That’s exactly what we’ve created.
You’ll get PD that fits in with your schedule. You can queue up the videos when it works for you. Plus, audio downloads are available for most presentations so you can listen on the go.
We’ve made PD easy for you.
With the presentations…you get easy-to-digest notes on what people will learn as a result of watching the content, plus good reflection questions if you’re leading discussions. (No prep necessary.)
All your PD for the year in one place.
But we also realize that it can be incredibly daunting to know when and how to implement it. We have training specifically to help you use this PD to your best advantage.
• Race & Equity
• Plus Self-Advocate Stories to help inspire your team when teaching disability history or self-advocacy or early childhood- so they can hear directly from people living that life, not people who are speaking for them.
Stories. Connection. Meaning.
This is what makes learning happen, and this is what we’ve included here so your team will be inspired, motivated, and energized to tackle this school year and all that follow.

Autism and Apraxia prevent me from speaking words with my mouth. This inability to verbalize my thoughts obviously does not indicate that I do not posses verbal skills. It simply means I do not have expressive language in the traditional sense. Before I found my voice through typing I was diagnosed with an intellectual disability as well.
Now that I type the tables have turned. People address me with normal volume and cadence. They are with ones who now wait for what I have to say. The difference is, I am worth the wait.
