Schuyler is my weird and wonderful monster-slayer. Together we have many adventures.
I ordered the video earlier this week and can't wait to see it. The trailer is amazing. Inclusion is working great for Ryan. I know it is going to be something that we are going to have to continue to advocate for as he goes through school and into the "real world", the fight never ends....but it is worth it. (HE is worth it!)Happy Thanksgiving to you, Julie and Schuyler!KristaKrista
WOW! I hope this can and will happen everywhere in every school.
Wow, That was great. Such a useful tool for educating others on something that they may not have been exposed to.Happy Thanksgiving!!
This is really fantastic. Thanks for sharing. They are already doing inclusion at my son's kindergarten...I don't know what the future holds, like most of us, but this is encouraging.
That was really interestingMy daughter just qualified as a preschooler with special needs and will begin an intergrated preschool tomorrow. We are just starting out on the journey of IEP's and new labels.... its really scary.
I've been really proud of the work we did at the full-inclusion preschool I worked at... but I think there are times when I don't realize (or maybe I forget) exactly how rare and valuable our program was...
It's a great film - my copy arrived last week and I was incredibly moved by it. Thanks, Rob, for doing your best to spread the word. FYI, Dan Habib will be interviewed on NPR tonight (Monday nov. 19) during All Things Considered. If you miss it the interview should be streamed online at www.npr.org sometime after it airs.
Thank you for promoting this film. As I near 40, I have returned to school to train as a Special Education teacher.I think inclusion works for most students. I also think there is a place for safer school enviroments, as the young woman with the mental illness expressed. Lastly, I've too often seen inclusion practiced as it was with the young woman whose teacher said she cries. Too many school see inclusion as the less expensive option and set student and teacher up for failure. I intend to a be a fierce advocate for the best education for each of my students. Kathleen
