Participation Support

Visit Project Participate to see how they provide families, educators, administrators and therapists with simple strategies to increase the active participation of students wtih disabilities in school programs. Project Participate facilitates team collaboration and promotes the appropriate uses of technology in the classroom.

What is Active Participation?
Being there is not enough. Students with disabilities benefit from placement in general education classrooms when they are given opportunities to actively participate! Often teams underestimate student abilities and mistake passivity for participation. This handout compares and contrasts active and passive participation to inspire teams to raise their expectations.
