Meaningful Inclusion
The MDSC in collaboration with the 3-21 Foundation is pleased to present this timely webinar.

Meaningful Inclusion: Inclusion is not a location, but a student-centered process. We want to see our children form fulfilling relationships, acquire academic skills, gain independence, improve their communication, and self-regulate their behavior in order to lead independent and happy lives. How do we develop programming in school to help our children develop in all of these areas? Join Ariel Klemmer, 3-21 Parent Educator and Educational Consultant, as she details the key elements to inclusive educational experiences that are meaningful to each unique student.
