Teachers and Paras Encourage to Gain Skills to Create an Inclusion Lifeline

In an inclusion classroom, general education teachers and special education teachers work together to meet the needs of students. This type of classroom gives special education students the support they need and allows them to stay in the least restrictive environment. All students can benefit from the additional resources and supportive techniques used in an inclusion classroom. Turtle Wing Foundation is offering a very special workshop for all teachers, general education and special education, and the paras who support them in the classroom with the goal of creating an inclusion lifeline. This training will be held on Monday, July 22 from 9 AM to 3 PM at Blinn/Schulenburg Room #120 (100 Ranger Dr.). Presenters are Loueva Hatfield and Julia Hollek of Hatch Educational Consultants. Through discussion and practice, the following objectives will be covered:  inclusion goals; identification of types of student learning/behavior challenges; outline to match the appropriate instructional strategy, accommodation and/or modification to identified student differences; and implementation roles within the inclusion setting. Registration is $10 and includes lunch. To register, staff or school may contact Susie Shank at (979)505-5090 or This workshop is being kept very affordable thanks to a grant from Wells Fargo Community Foundation. Turtle Wing hopes to have participation of staff from every school district in their service area, which includes, Colorado, Fayette, Lavaca and surrounding counties. Turtle Wing Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization which helps children with academic, social-emotional, behavioral and/or developmental needs and provided Early Intervention and  Supplemental Services to over 300 children last year with thousands more being impacted by Community Education & Advocacy programming.
