The Inclusion Guide is an overview on how to build an inclusive Day School community. It includes descriptions of the Individualized Education Plan process, student-centric classroom design, a parental perspective on having a child with a disability, and what the community can do to ensure students with disabilities feel welcomed and supported inside and outside of school.
