About the Session

  • In this session, Lee Ann challenges the traditional views of general and special education and the resulting identities of educators. Participants actively explore and analyze concepts of school culture and climate for inclusive learning support, roles of everyone in the building to maximize our time and effectiveness, and the misunderstanding of students with disabilities as having “special needs.” Lee Ann presents universal design for learning and a tiered approach to support as solutions to bring greater equity in outcomes for students.
