We Include helps administrators, teachers, and peers feel educated and comfortable with incorporating inclusion into classrooms and schools.

Creating inclusive schools is possible. It takes open-minded school administrators who are willing to consider that the value of inclusion outweighs the growing pains of change. It takes teachers who are willing to listen to research and make adjustments in the classroom when needed. It takes students who are taught to see the value in diversity.
That seems achievable, right?
Let’s start by helping to positively change one of the biggest challenges that administrators, teachers and students are faced with when creating inclusive learning: sensory meltdowns in the classroom.

"When I was a little kid I had a lot of problems with sound sensitivity. Sensory problems are real." -Dr. Temple Grandin

Temple Grandin is the single most influential person with autism in modern times. One look at her life reveals an incredibly gifted mind paired with an unbreakable spirit. With her life’s work, she accomplished the impossible. Temple Grandin changed the world’s perception of what it means to live with autism.
Temple invented an internationally-renowned therapy device; she earned a Ph.D.; she wrote and published papers, articles, and books; she tours the world as a famous animal welfare speaker and autism advocate, and she revolutionized the way animals are handled and treated. She’s amazing. She’s wonderful. She’s inspirational. She works hard and she talks straight.
Dr. Grandin accredits much of her success to the teachers who encouraged and challenged her to keep growing outside her comfort zone. She describes her teachers as “absolutely vital”. Her story is proof that excellent educators can change the course of a student’s life.

Put an End to Bullying

Statistics show almost 75% of students with disabilities are bullied. Bullying has lasting adverse effects on a child’s development and how well they do in school. Children who bully others are emotionally unwell. It’s time for teachers, school administrators, parents, and peers to join forces to put an end to bullying.

Bullying and Students with Disabilities

We Include created a guide for students to understand a bully’s mind, how not to be one, and what to do when they see someone at their school, especially a student with disabilities, is being targeted.
This guide is also a helpful resource for teachers to educate their students. If you would like the We Include team to send you a copy, email info@weinclude.org.
