Introducing the First START Project Community Read!

As we prepare for this year's START Conference and the Keynote presentation by Paula Kluth, this is an excellent opportunity for those in the ASD community to read her book titled “Don’t We Already Do Inclusion? 100 Ideas for Improving Inclusive Schools." An ongoing theme of our START Conferences and trainings has been inclusive opportunities. Although we see tremendous progress, we continue to ask: how do we make sure all students with disabilities have opportunities to learn alongside their peers?

The best way to tackle such an issue is to inspire a large group of people to read, think, and discuss the topic. Here is your chance to reinvigorate your thinking and commit to actions that help your school continue to build inclusive practices. Visit the Community Read page for more information on Paula Kluth, the book selection, and discussion questions.
