Presented By: Kristie Pretti-Frontczak / Dr. Julie Causton

The academic and social-emotional benefits of truly inclusive education are documented in study after study. And it’s not just students with disabilities who benefit—the gains are across the board.

However, knowing the benefits of inclusion is one thing. Putting effective inclusion into action? That takes time and effort. And these days, time and effort are hard to come by.

That’s where Dr. Kristie Pretti-Frontczak and Dr. Julie Causton come in. Through their organization, Inclusive Schooling, they’ve worked with over 500 districts to lay the groundwork for academic inclusion, and they’re excited to share it.

Join Kristie and Julie as they discuss practical ideas, tips, and strategies that support academic inclusion in action, like:

  • Supporting lessons with access points for all learners
  • Providing multiple means to “show what you know,” movement, and supporting choices – because choice is the friend of inclusion
  • Creating adaptations and using tools to support learners with disabilities in an inclusive classroom (like Co:Writer)
