Disability Leadership Institute

The Institute uniquely provides elementary, middle school and high school teachers, school counselors and school nurses with an understanding of the critical intersections between contemporary theory and effective learning and service practices, examining them within the context of disability rights narrative, special education and social theories of marginalization.

By the conclusion of the Institute professionals will expand their knowledge about serving the needs of each individual learner as they explore how to: understand each students most pressing needs, evaluate organizational structures as they apply to the students experience and design methods of practice based on a whole child approach.
