Welcome to Inclusion Matters’ Education Program!
Proven in over 200 schools, Together, We Are Able fosters awareness, communication, and understanding between general and special education students, eliminating conflict and bullying while teaching crucial life skills.
The program, which serves Los Angeles-area elementary students, consists of three steps:
1. A 60-minute classroom ability awareness workshop that helps general education students walk through their beliefs and assumptions about disabilities while preparing them for interaction with their peers with differences.
2. An interactive field trip to an inclusive playground, where your students with and without disabilities are paired together for a day of play and learning.
3. A follow-up, 45-minute classroom workshop that helps general education students synthesize how their perceptions shifted, what they learned from their buddies with disabilities, and how they can pay it forward in the community.
