INCLUSIVE LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
Schools worldwide are taking on the important initiative of strengthening INCLUSION! Yet, teachers throughout the world report feeling the least prepared in the area of inclusion. Our program provides research-based, practical strategies to meet the needs of all students in their classrooms.
How do we differentiate effectively? What should the roles of the classroom teacher and the specialists be? How do we deliver intervention in ways that don’t pull students from their courses? What are the ways to use co-teaching within an RTI framework? How do we provide support within our master schedule? What data do we analyze as teams and how? How do we maximize our special education staff and paraprofessionals? What are the strategies that work? How do we make sure our IEPs are meaningful, matter, and are implemented?

"Being a part of the International Inclusive Leadership Program provided me with much more than professional development. I was given the opportunity to be with like-minded, passionate educators who all share the goal of bringing inclusive education to our school communities. The course selection provided me with fundamental knowledge and skills so I could effectively initiate change within my own school community, and the instructors were knowledgable, passionate, and dedicated to helping each individual grow as an inclusive educator. My participation in this program has been the most profound learning experience of my career."
