Teaching Inclusion to Future Special Educators: Parent Simulations to Promote Family-Centered Practices

Simulations have been used in teacher preparation programs for quite some time.  However, use of a real parent of a child with a disability to meet with future special educators in a simulation hasn’t been described in previously.  This session will include practical information on how a parent of a child with a disability can participate in a simulation to promote inclusion and family-centered practices.     Simulations with a parent of a child with a disability can promote inclusive and family-centered practices with future special educators.
