This full-day Saturday workshop, brought to you by SEPTA and the Arlington Inclusion Task Force, will provide an introductory overview of the research on including students with disabilities in the general education setting, and other reasons to educate all students together. Trainers from the Maryland Coalition for Inclusive Education will also provide hands-on practical tips for including students with disabilities, including how to modify and adapt curricular materials, how to welcome all students, how to presume competence, and how to positively address behavioral disruptions. It will be geared toward general education teachers, special education teachers, and paraprofessionals, but will be open to all administrators and staff. APS parents and students will be able to attend on a space-permitting basis. APS will be providing teacher recertification points for attendance.
If you are not located in Arlington but have an interest in attending, please send an email explaining your interest and affiliation to firstname.lastname@example.org. Non-APS attendees may be accommodated on a space-available basis.Not a member yet?
