Campaign for Inclusion

All Children Deserve the Opportunity to Achieve Their Fullest Potential.

Today, across the state and nation, we are failing the most vulnerable members of our communities. We are not living up to our moral and legal obligations to provide effective educational support to children with developmental disabilities. Children with disabilities remain separated from their typically developing peers. Families are unsure how to be effective advocates and participants in their child’s education. Educators do not receive the training necessary to lead inclusive classrooms. At the Haring Center we are developing and implementing the tools and practices needed to put full inclusion within reach.

Inclusive education is at a watershed moment; incidence rates for developmental disabilities are rising rapidly while government has slashed support. The University of Washington and local community leaders have launched the Campaign for Inclusion to respond to growing demand. This campaign will:

  • Expand access to training for teachers and school district leaders to implement inclusive classrooms
  • Increase inclusive services for children with developmental disabilities and their families
  • Broaden inclusive programs for children with autism and related disorders
  • Enable the Center to attract and retain the brightest research and teaching minds

We can do more than imagine an inclusive world.
We can create it.
