Our Campaign

Our campaign is to develop resources for families. The resources will focus on high school age students and how families can support their child/youth. Topics will include:

Self-determination and transition planning:

  • How families can support their youth with a disability to be self-directed
  • How families can contribute to, and participate in, their youth’s plans for the future

Social and academic high school inclusion

  • Creating natural social relationships and positive interactions between students with disabilities and their peers
  • Creating natural opportunities for peer learning supports in high school: From cooperative learning to peer mentor programs

We will post these new resources on our website as free PDFs. These will be disseminated, through social media and email blasts, and available in hard copies. We will also distribute these resources through our professional network, including parent advocacy and resource organizations as well as schools.

Families are a vital part of work to promote positive outcomes for students with disabilities, and inclusive experiences in secondary and post-secondary education. By producing new resources for families, we begin the expansion of our current resources and publications. With every $3,000 raised, we can produce one (1) new resource and print and disseminate 300 copies to further increase home-school collaboration and positive school and post-school outcomes for students with disabilities and their families.
