Learn from experts about welcoming and supporting students with special needs
Attend a conference presented by the FIRE Foundation: 
Inclusion in Catholic and Parochial Schools
February 22-24, 2017 / Kansas City, Missouri

Do you want to build and strengthen inclusive education practices at your Catholic and/or parochial school? Are you wondering how to create and support a culture of inclusion at your school? Are you an educator or parent who believes children of ALL abilities should be welcomed to faith-based schools? Come and learn strategies for implementing and supporting best practices in inclusive education.

Participants will have the opportunity to attend multiple breakout sessions on topics. Learn how to create successful learning experiences for students with diagnoses ranging from Learning and Attention Issues to Autism Spectrum Disorder to Sensory Processing Disorder and Down syndrome. Learn how schools, parents and the FIRE Foundation partner to support students’ success in Catholic/parochial schools. With a two-decade track record of success in successful inclusion in the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, our team is equipped to help participants overcome obstacles, secure resources and create successful inclusion programs.

National experts from Loyola University in Chicago, University of Notre Dame, and Kids Included Together (an advocacy and education organization based in San Diego) will offer inspiration, insight and practical advice on implementing and strengthening inclusive education programs.

Capacity is limited. Register today! This is a perfect opportunity for special educators, principals, para-educators, parents and inclusion advocates. For full conference info including information about keynote speakers, breakout sessions, location and registration, click here.
