All In: 5 Ways to Support Inclusion in Virtual Education

This content expired December 18, 2020

As schools closed in response to the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, many teachers, advocates, and families became concerned that inclusion would no longer be a priority. As weeks became months, many of these same teachers, advocates, and families got creative and designed structures and strategies to keep kids with and without disabilities connected to one another and to make sure that inclusive learning continued in virtual lessons and beyond.

This presentation is pulled from a new book on the topic and highlights some of those structures and strategies. It is also a call to action and a reminder to keep focused on the goal of inclusion as we all social distance and plan both virtual and hybrid lessons alone and with collaborative partners. Featured ideas include communicating creatively, leaning into peer support, providing choices and letting families lead.
