Include CA
Redondo Beach, California

As a parent, I have struggled to keep my 17 year old son in an Inclusive setting. Now I am using that experience to support other families as an advocate. Including kids one at a time is frustrating and inadequate. I am passionate about advocating for systemic change in special education and have sought out other parents who are working with their districts or advocating locally to press for change. I have enjoyed being a CalTASH board member and met so many great inclusionists through our state chapter.  As a CA LEND Family Support alumni, I developed an interest in research on how we support families in the special education system, and how we train parents to advocate for strength based inclusive IEPs. With eight other parents and a self advocate, I am building a new organisation, Include CA, focused on empowering parents within our education system to advocate for inclusive practices at a systemic level. I am also a writer and Content Specialist for Undivided.
