Watch a new video produced by the AESD Network's Inclusionary Practices Project (IPP)! This video interview highlights the journey school teams in Washington State are taking to improve and increase inclusionary practices.

Educators and parents share the importance of inclusive education and the impact it is having on their students, families, and staff.

More information about IPP:
* The IPP is working with over 140 schools and districts across the state to improve and increase inclusive education.
* This project seeks to address the educational inequities experienced by all students including students with disabilities.
* There is no such thing as an average learner, research shows that every child has a unique set of learning needs, interests, strengths, and preferences.
* When educators find ways to offer choices and flexibility in classrooms all learners flourish.
