Join us as we interview Dr. Frances Stetson, founder of The Inclusive Schools Network (ISN). A a global resource of professionals, families, schools and organizations focused on inclusive education around the world.

Their mission:  "To encourage, embolden and empower people to design and implement effective inclusive schools, by sharing insights and best practices and by providing opportunities for connection". 

We will discuss what it means to be Inclusive and highlight ISN's training program for schools, professionals and parents.

"Dr. Stetson's personal focus on inclusive schools began when serving as a member of the first Child Find Task Force as a consultant with the Texas Education Agency in the mid-70’s.  She remembers finding a great number of children excluded from school and the challenges of finding appropriate services for students with disabilities. She assisted in writing the first Report to Congress regarding PL94-142 and documented the increase in the numbers and diversity of students with disabilities educated in public school settings. Her dissertation topic revolved around critical administrative factors that facilitate successful implementation of the Least Restrictive Environment mandate".
