Inclusion: The Henry Frost Story

This is the Story of Henry Frost, his fight for inclusion in his neighborhood school and what he has learned about ableism, inclusion, and himself. This talk invites community perspectives on inclusion for older children, the present dysfunction in IDEA as opposed to its intended purpose, and encourages families to view their older children as participatory advocates and stakeholders in their own educational futures.

After this session participants will able to:

  1. 1. Define what inclusion should be
  2. 2. Identify two strategies for restructuring and approaching inclusion for individuals needing supports
  3. 3. Give insights into living presuming competence and supporting older children and adults in self advocacy
