Our featured speaker, Dr. Paula Kluth, is a consultant, author, advocate, and independent scholar who works with teachers and families to provide inclusive opportunities for students with disabilities, and to create more responsive and engaging schooling experiences for all learners.
Pathways for Success
In this interactive session, participants will learn practical ways of supporting students with disabilities within a general education classroom. The topics addressed include defining (and
redefining) disability, listening to the voices of all students, differentiating instruction, creating
more active and responsive lessons, making the classroom comfortable, and providing opportunities for communication and social skill development. The session will focus on the
importance of pushing beyond access and participation and asking schools to challenge
students and to understand each learner as complex and capable.
