The head of a new school for students with language-based disabilities explains the kinds of conversations, choices and relationships that have informed the school’s vision and formation.
Diverse student bodies create an enriched educational environment for all, fostering compassion and understanding for peers who have a variety of physical, emotional, behavioral, or health challenges. Inclusive learning environments add intellectual, social, and spiritual benefits. These environments foster open learning spaces that encourage the sharing and exchanging of unique experiences and challenges, and work towards instilling the acceptance of all people regardless of their differences.
