21_Connect hosted a group of 120 educators, administrators, therapists, and parents for an all day conference on the topic of inclusion.
Our speaker, Dr. Julie Causton, was one of those ‘exceed your expectations, blow your mind, and make you laugh hysterically’ kind of presenters. In her words, “when inclusive education is fully embraced, we abandon the idea that children have to become ‘normal’ in order to contribute to the world… we begin to look beyond typical ways of becoming valued members of the community, and in doing so, begin to realize the achievable goal of providing all children with an authentic sense of belonging.”
We couldn’t agree more. If you ever have a chance to hear Julie speak, we highly recommend her! A huge thank you to everyone that attended and made this conference possible!
