December is going to be a busy, busy month, and it starts with Inclusive School Week (December 4-8). This Buzz brings you resources on inclusion that you can use today, this month, and far into the future. Together, we build. As this year’s slogan says, “Stand up, sit tall for inclusion.”

Our best to you all,

The CPIR Team | Debra, Lisa, Jessica, Ana-Maria, and Myriam

Webinar | Assistive Technology Tools to Meet Student Needs in the Classroom
This August 2017 webinar from the Center for Technology and Disability highlights the accessibility features available in a range of devices that can empower students to be independent in completing assignments.

Principal Leadership: Moving Towards Inclusive and High-Achieving Schools for Students with Disabilities
Principals can play a huge part in moving their schools toward the inclusion and achievement of students with disabilities. This paper from the CEEDAR Center features a matrix that can guide principal leadership professionals through the major components of inclusive practice.

Making Inclusion a Reality
From PBS Parents, these suggestions spotlight what parents can do to promote inclusion for their child, what schools can do to promote successful inclusive education, and what families can do if they meet with resistance to an inclusive education for their child.
